Maybe after the neighbor decided he wasn't able to burn down the OP's house during July 4, he decided to flatten ot with a tree! Better be careful OP, he may water his garden but in reality may be trying to flood your house!

But then he would have nothing to stew about. Well until the next neighbor looks at funny.

Monday I will call him and tell him I dont have a saw now and cant do him the favor of cutting up his tree. When he cut away and cleaned up the mess on his property he made the cut directly on the property line. Some things you shouldnt have to draw a picture for others to know. Its a no brainer for me to understand...MY tree = MY MESS..HIS TREE =HIS MESS

You are just making an assumption that he flat out refuses to clean up the mess on your property. In most cases, all you have to do is TALK to the homeowner, NOT his daughter.

Really, litigation for nonsense? That's the world we live in, I suppose.

seems to be one of two common themes in all of the OP's threads.......1) whining and 2) who can I sue?

must be from new jersey, where if someone coughs in the same room as you you can sue. hope you find your lawsuit, I feel you will truly be happy then!

I even repaired his wrecked car for a fraction of what a shop would have charged..... Now what has he done to repay my kindness? NOTHING.. Now the first chance he gets to do something that will save me some work (work that Im not even responsible to do) and he cuts the fallen log directly over the property line being careful not to remove even one inch of what is laying in my yard...How would you feel? I have severe arthritis in both hands and shoulder and doing this tree cutting will not be easy. I wanted to be a good neighbor again and cut up the entire branch but my chainsaw broke.If anyone is a bad neighbor it is this guy. I shouldn't even have to go and talk to him about the fallen branch. He should have stepped up and did the right thing when HE HAD A SAW...


Well, you can't come here and expect a simple answer for your simple question and not tell the whole story! I'm convinced that you only want to hear want you want to hear and nothing more. Well, that's not how it works.

Stop doing free things for him, if you expect something in return. I had the same neighbor for twenty years, I fixed more things in his house, then in my own. Saving him lot's of money in labor costs. I never once thought to myself, "when is he going to return the favors"? I did it because we were neighbors and I didn't expect ANYTHING in return.

You need to talk to the HOMEOWNER about the clean up. I have no reason to believe he will not clean up his mess. Or, don't and take him to court

We should charge you for consultation fees. If you don't pay up, I'm taking you to court

Stop taking cheap shots at folks from Jersey! I get along with my neighbors just fine. We even, GASP, talk to one another.

This dude just sounds plain cranky.
