How to handle the neighbors pesky overhanging branches!?

Have you always wondered if you have the right to cut down overhanging branches or roots from a neighbors tree? The answer is yes, but only under certain circumstances. If the trunk of a tree is located entirely on the neighbors property, an adjoining owner can remove overhanging branches up to the boundary, but cannot cut down the tree. The rule for roots is different. An owner cannot remove encroaching roots from a neighbors tree unless the roots are damaging the homeowner's property. Furthermore, an owner who acts unreasonably in removing encroaching roots can be held liable for damages.
