Not sure what I can do. Issue with a tree and neighbor
There is a huge tree that grows between ours and the neighbors house. The tree is theirs. There is a family living in the house. But they are only renters. The landlord is in property management whatever you call it. When they own a bunch of rental properties. 2 summers back a huge section of that tree fell in their yard after a bad storm.. Some middle aged guy and his wife were living in the upstairs. It crushed their granddaughters wading pool. They spoke to the landlord about cutting the whole tree down. He says No. Something tells me part of the tree is rotting away. The family that rents the whole house upper and lower units of this duplex now. Well the father. He is a construction worker. He did clip some of the branches that hung in my yard last summer. He too had been trying to get the landlord to cut the whole tree down. Or let him cut it down in exchange for some rent. He too got a no answer. I don't expect the city to do anything. Not unless the whole tree was rotted through. I don't wish bad on anyone. But sometimes I think. To bad another good chunk of the tree don't fall in their yard. Not on anyones house or garage. Just in the yard. Maybe the landlord would get the hint remover the tree. When it was a few years after we moved in our house. The city told me. I can clip branches that hang in our yard. But can't take the whole tree down. Since it belongs to someone else. Every summer the health inspector has been around the neighborhood. We live close to the train tracks. Rats have been seen in the alley. So they send someone out to check yards in summer. See if there are signs of rats. If the health inspector comes. I might just ask him what I can do about the tree. Show it to them. Saying I am worried our house might get destroyed if the tree fell. I did have one quote of almost $2000 to have the whole tree taken down. We don't have that kind of money just lying around. That landlord doesn't even want to split the cost with us.
