Dead tree on the line

Recommended Posts

If the tree is on the property line, neither of you are required to remove the tree just because it appears dead.  Whoever is offended by the presence of the dead tree can have it removed.  But that does not obligate the other party to pay half.  On the other hand, just because the tree is leaning toward her property that would not be grounds for her to sue you.  Why would you be threatening to sue you?  What would she be suing you for?  Half of the price of removal?

I assume the reference to "the line" means the line between your property and that of a neighbor.  If that's correct, the answer to the question is no.

Hi @frustratedtoo

 

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting! Sorry to hear about your issue with your neighbor that sounds really frustrating. Neighbor disputes about trees near the property boundary lines are super common -- so much so that FindLaw has an entire Learn About the Law section dedicated to neighbor disputes about trees. A boundary tree cannot be removed without mutual consent by both parties. You may want to speak with a local real estate attorney about your rights and options in this situation.
