Palm Coast, FL asked in Agricultural Law for Florida

Q: What is the law in reference to trees or bushes hanging over property line, fifteen feet high?

Branches from my tree cross over my property line onto next yard about 15feet in the air, not touching any structure. Am I in violation of any laws?

A: Cases vary depending upon the facts of the case and the ability of the parties to a case to resolve the specific issues established in the pleadings of the case. Mediation is mandatory, usually, and a complete settlement can be reached in a vast majority of cases filed. In order to know the law on this particular subject most attorneys would have to do extensive research. I have never done research on this particular issue, over the course of 30 years of practicing law in Florida. One thing that must be looked into is local ordinances on this subject. Another is the case law on this subject.
