Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
You have the right to cut off branches and roots that stray into your property; provided, however, you must first warn or give notice to the tree owner prior to commencing work and give the tree owner the chance to correct the problem. If the tree owner does nothing, the tree can still be trimmed to the property line. But, in order to avoid any claim by the tree owner that you trimmed the roots negligently thereby causing damage to the tree that could have been avoided, I would recommend you have a tree expert trim the tree, especially with regard to any roots.
