Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Does the neighbor have any proof that it is your tree's roots that have caused her damages?
What is your legal question that I can help with tonight?
Ok, if there is no proof that the tree is causing any damages, then she has no grounds to pursue a complaint. Unfortunately that doesn't mean that she can't cause problems by filing a court case against the owner of the property and allege that she has suffered damages. With that said, whoever was served the complaint would have to appear on the assigned date to address the complaint or potentially face contempt of court charges for failing to appear.
With that said, if the sign was placed on your property, then that is considered a trespass to property and would give you (or the property owner) grounds to file their own complaint for trespass.
You are very welcome. If you have further questions, don't hesitate to reply and I will try to get you an answer.
