Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
You can cut the limbs/branches back to the property line, but so can the neighbor.
However, the neighbor cannot cut the entire tree down and cannot destroy the structural integrity or the cosmetic symmetry and appeal of a tree by improper trimming UNLESS the neighbor gets a court order granting him/her the right to do so.....which likely would be available only if there was proof that the tree was a nuisance, a danger, etc.
