My neighbor refuses to get a tree person to come out to trim his trees and he has threatened me if I do it myself. There are horrible cherry branches that make a huge mess on my lawn every year and attract all types of terrible birds. What sort of laws are on my side for cutting down the errant branches?
I have my realestate license in Tennessee. The answer is yes, as long as you trim the tree branches that is over your property. Every property owner has what is called "Air Rights". "Air Rights" is the right that a property owner has to control the air space above his property.
Real Estate Glossary (see definition for "Air Rights")
well there r no laws stating that u can cut them your self so go and stand up to that man and tell him "im sick of asking u nicely to get those trees off my lawn im going to do it my self "
and if he threants u or tries to hurt u then u call the police or u buss him dead in the face that is if he tries to hart u then u can say u were defending yourself lol
If it's hanging your property...the branches became your responsibility according to Dearborn Real Estate Education call 312-836-4400. You own that air space!
