Branches from a tree in my neighbor’s yard hang over our shared fence. These branches hang low and block a walkway on the side of my garage. Can I trim the branches back to the property line? You have the right to remove the over-hanging branches, but that doesn't mean you should run outside with your saw. If you damage the tree or violate any local ordinances regarding tree trimming and limb removal, you could find yourself liable for damages or facing fines. Start by talking to your neighbor about the branches, and get his agreement on how you’ll trim the tree. Also, check with your city about any restrictions on pruning trees.
