If you have a subscription with SKY call them, you should be able to get it done for free. You will have to either move the dish to get a clear line of sight or chop the tree down though. If you are feeling adventurous just purchase a signal strength meter off eBay and move the dish yourself, it's a simple thing to do I put my one up OK.

yep, sky will generally do it for free if you're on contract.  If not, a local fixer should able to re-site the dish for £60-100.  If you're feeling handy - it's not that hard to do. 

Plug your post code in here and then drag/drop the pointer to the exact place you're putting the dish.  Zoom in and print it off.  With the aid of that, a compass and a spirit level, it makes for a fun afternoon! (Make sure the dish is perfectly level).  I bought a Sat Finder but found it a bit rubbish, it's better to have someone downstairs watching the screen with them shouting when you hit the sweet spot.
