Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.
If the trees are on your neighbor's property, then he may remove them. But if the trees are literally on both properties because they are right on the line, then your neighbor may not remove the trees without your consent since you co-own those trees.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
If there is a dispute about this that can't be resolved, then the only way to resolve it is to let a court decide. As difficult as it sounds, it probably would come down to a tree by tree analysis to see who owns which tree. Hopefully, you two can come to an agreement without the need for a court order, however, as that would be expensive litigation.
Yes, that sums it up. You have a solid understanding.
