I am sorry to hear that you had damage from the tree.
Under GA law, a neighboring owner may trim that part of the tree that encroaches on to their land, up to the boundary line, provided that due care is taken and the tree is not harmed/destroyed in the process (if harmed/destroyed, the tree owner can sue for damages).
As for the portion on the neighboring land, it is the neighboring landowner's duty to dispose of the wood. If the wood is placed on the tree owner's property they can sue for trespass.
If the tree itself poses future threat (ie unhealthy) then the neighboring landowner can seek an injunction which orders the tree owner to remove, at the tree owner's cost, the entire tree.
