Muncy, PA asked in Real Estate Law and Small Claims for Pennsylvania

Q: I have a considerable amount of trees along my neighbors border. He is ignorant, selfish and abusive. When my trees fall

down the wind direction usually blows the trees towards and onto his property. He takes this opportunity to threaten

and harrass me as I go about cleaning them up. These are not border trees, these are trees that grow from well within

my property. Can I drag the part that lays over the line back onto my side(without touching his property), or am I only allowed to recoup the part that lays on my side of the line? The location is rural union county,pa.

A: You are obligated to remove everything. If he won’t let you enter his property, you will have to remove the trees by pulling them from your side.

Further, if the falling trees cause damage to his property, since you are already on notice, it will likely be your problem.
