I am simply hypothesising. The point is that there may be members of the block who would be properly upset about the loss of the tree.

Off the top of my head I would say he has if the land is not subject to a tenancy. Each co-owner is entitled to occupy the land and accordingly must have the right to abate the trespsass.

Shouldn't they all agree that the job wants doing?

I think they will all agree to me removing overhanging branches at no cost to themselves. Hands in pocket for a tree surgeon is a different matter. I am gf and although a communal garden the others do not use it.
