You cannot force your neighbor to cut or trim his tree even if it is overhanging your property. However, he cannot prevent you from trimming an overhanging branch if it is extending over your lot line. You have a right to trim a branch back to the lot line, but no further.



Why should I have to pay to have my neighbor's tree limbs trimmed?? It doesn't seem fair. Linda
