Is there legal recourse for nuisance trees in the San Fernando Valley, California?

Los Angeles, CA |

Our neighbor's pine tree drops an enormous amount of pine needles in our front and backyard - the sap is damaging our roof the exterior paint on our vehicles and the swimming pool. They also have a large tree in their backyard where the branches now rub up against the outisde of our home. We have asked them if they could trim their trees and they say it is too expensive. Do we have any legal recourse? Thank you.

  1. Yes, you may have recourse and if the trees are overhanging onto your property you may be able to cut them back to the property line but this needs more information and more investigation.
