Q: My neighbor’s tree overhangs my property. I am concerned it will damage my house. Can I cut it down?
A: You can cut the branches that are hanging over your side of the property. It is a simple rule: If they are on your side, you can cut them. If you don’t want to do this, you can serve him with a letter, via certified mail, return receipt, asking him to cut them down. That may help you if your property is damaged, but I would not bet on it. The easiest thing to do is cut them down.
