neighbors stubs and damages all my trees on property line

13 years ago

My neighbor cuts my trees on the property line- stubs them. This is legal but you are not supposed to be able to do this to the point of damaging the tree. But how could you enforce this? Who decides that the tree is damaged? Do I have to wait 5 years for it to die?

What has occurred is the tree is unbalanced with the bulk of it now over my house. I am trying to prevent them from cutting the remaining section that hangs over their yard. The neighbor has told me that she CAN NOT have ANY branches over her driveway. We are not speaking. Today I ran off her gardener who was on my property, climbing my tree so that they could remove branches overhanging their driveway. I volunteered in the past to trim the trees and pay for it myself, but she has refused my offer in favour of tree hackers. What would you do?
