    If you use Form 3 - Notice for removal of particular overhanging branches

    Notices to neighbours regarding fences and trees - Form 3 - Notice for removal of particular overhanging branches - Publications | Queensland Government

    and they choose to come and remove it and give notice do they "remove" everything or are they allowed to cut and put inside your bin?

    I can't find any clear laws that clarifies this. The term remove can be understood differently.

    What to do if a neighbour's tree is affecting you | Your rights, crime and the law | Queensland Government

    I doubt there will be any laws that specify what bin it should go into.
    This would be more of a negotiation. Ask them to remove it out of your bin if you do not want it there. Or just wheel it out to the road and let the council take it.

    Burn it?
    You'll need wood to keep things warm and toasty in temple, so best you hang onto it

    Form 3?? What's the world coming too? Years ago you would just pop around next door for a cup of tea and politely bring the subject up about the overhanging branches to your neighbor and perhaps even offer to help.

    If I received a form 3 from my neighbor I'd reply with a form 6 up their #%=^!

    Forget the form and talk to your neighbor.

    Whats a "firm 3"?

    You could call the police, you could say the branches are trespassing as they have entered your property.
    Best to call the police and get them out to inspect before you boil the billy

    @Scott No Mates wouldn't you rather get a visit from your neighbour asking you politely if you can trim the over hanging branch rather then a form 3 in your letter box? I would be more inclined to do the right thing and trim the branch if the neighbour takes the time to come over.

    I know all my neighbours, even neighbours from my investment properties.

    This tree is entering sacred lands. Temple construction is to proceed, no niceties! Take no prisoners.
    If there wasn't a religious sanction on the land one would simply trim any over hanging branches without the chit chat

    @bob shovel Clearly you don't go to church! Before one can build a temple, one must be at peace and drink tea with neighbour. It's even in the bible, some where in the back.
