The answer is yes
, you can. The key here is because the bush is entirely rooted on your side, so it is considered yours. Allow me to explain:
1) You may cut anything rooted on your side;
2) You may cut anything that hangs over on your side, but only up to the point that it crosses unto your land. You may cut anything that encroaches (i.e. sends roots) over on your side, but only up to the point that it crosses unto your land.
So you can cut the bush if it is on your property. Your neighbor can cut the party that hangs over to their property. Day v. Gabriele, 921 A. 2d 692 - Conn: Appellate Court 2007
If you decide to cut your bush since it is rooted completely on your land, it is also best to ensure that any vegetation that is left on your neighbor's property is cleaned up.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Best of luck.
