If they are your trees cut them down or lift the crown
If they are the neighbours .......go and discuss the matter very gently
See www.hedgeline.org though before you go

If you plant Vinca it wont be long before thats all thats growing everywhere
Large trees and shade do not encourage grass or anything else

why not give up on the lawn, cover the area in a thick coat of play-bark and
plant things like primulas, hostas, astilbes, dogwoods, rhododendrons etc
around the edges.

Is it very leaf mouldy under the trees? Is it always very dry, or is it collecting water
from elsewhere (eg slope, drip circle of the trees)?

I'm guessing you're talking about dry shade here so I've done a quick check
and the following should do okay under trees:
Euphorbia
Cranesbill
Cyclamen
Luzula nivea
Mahonia
