Thank you for your question.
If the trunk straddles the boundary line,the tree is owned equally by both neighbors, and neither can cut it down without the consent of the other.
If the tree causes damage to the neighbor's property because branches fall there, you are not liable for that.
This kind of issue is best resolved by agreement of the neighbors before the tree or any branches fall.
I hope this information is helpful.
