Dear Sir / Madam,

There is no harm in cutting the entire branch of the tree protruding over the roof of your house right up to the vertical main stem joint (bark) of the tree since it is damaging your roof. If the owner desists from permitting you to cut the entire branch, lodge a prior FIR in the local Police station and then carry out the work.
