Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

If the association's trees are devaluing your property because of the associations failure to maintain the trees AND the bylaws of the association state they are liable for maintenance of the trees, then the association remains liable. If the association refuses to maintain the trees despite your repeated efforts, your sole remaining recourse and option here is to file a civil suit against them for nuisance and for causing a loss of value to your premises based on the diminished value of the property.
