Thank you for your response. I am confused in the first sentence where you say : unless the tree is defective (i.e., the limbs are in danger of falling and hurting someone) or the tree limb is actually touching your house,then you have the right to trim the limbs back to the property line, and you would bear the cost of the trimming.
This sounds like a double negative, what if the tree IS touching my house or IS defective?
If the tree is not touching my house and /or is not defective, do I have the right to trim it back to the property line?
