What are my rights to protect my property from neighbor's pine tree branches/falling needles/pine cones over-hanging the property line?
Question Details: Neighbor has 4 large pine trees planted on lot line. One is dead and has been for a year. The others have branches overhanging the lot line which drop dead needles and pine cones. Do I have a right to trim branches that overhang my property?
I'm not a Wisconsin attorney, but the law in most states does give you that right. Your best approach to this is to take photographs and a survey of your property to a lawyer in your area, who can explain exactly what you can and cannot do about this.
There is a right way and a wrong way to deal with the problem, and the wrong way is usually more expensive than the legal fees for reliable advice.
