Trees and Neighbors
I live in a brownstone with a backyard. A large branch from a tree in the rear neighbor’s yard came down in my yard in strong winds. The branch is too large for me to move, so it will have to be cut up and removed by a professional. Who is responsible for this expense — the owner of the house in whose yard the tree grows, or me? If I need to contact the owners, how do I determine who that is, short of knocking on their door and inquiring?
