Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
If the trees roots or limbs grow over across the vertical property boundary line then this would be considered a trespass to property and would give you legal grounds to sue them for trespass and for "private nuisance " if the trees cause problems with limbs, leaves or roots damaging your property. A private nuisance is an interference with a person's enjoyment and use of his land. The law recognizes that landowners, or those in rightful possession of land, have the right to the unimpaired condition of the property and to reasonable comfort and convenience in its occupation.
So once the trees begin to cause problems, you can sue them under the trespass and private nuisance claims to force them to abate the nuisance by either cutting them back across the property line or removing them entirely. You can also seek money damages if the trees cause some type of damage to your property.
But if you are asking if there is something you can do now, unfortunately the answer is no because the law doesn't provide a recourse for a potential future injury, only an actual injury.
