Pruning of neighbor's trees that overhang my yard
There is one tree in a neighbor's yards that overhangs my yard. I would like to prune it so I get some sunlightin my yard. One arborist said that removing the branches that overhang my yard would kill the tree. In addition, I am worried about this tree, which is old, could damage my house, my neighbor's house or both. I have discussed this with the owner of the house next door but he has taken no action. If I have the branches removed that overhang my yard and the tree dies, am I financially responsible for any damage the tree might do or for the death of the tree?
