This just happened to us last week, only it was 2 huge trees, that smashed both ours and another neighbors fences. Everyone involved was responsible for the damage to their own property and removal of the parts of the tree on their property.

Is the branch still there? I'm kinda inclined not to believe any of this tbh.

How's this for rude:
Shoot me a message, tell me where you live and a good time to stop by and I'll bring my truck and my chainsaw and remove the limb for you.

No problem!
I'll bring the beer. Do you think a case is enough for two people to drink while cutting up a limb?

Heading over to Frugal MacDoogal in Fort Mill for the brew? You can also stop nearby for more guilty pleasure...




Note to OP...just having some fun, nothing personal, hope your situation is resolved in a good way.

Unless your neighbor is a complete jackass, just let him know you would have and intended to clean up the whole affair until your chainsaw blew up in your face (fire on a chainsaw is new one on me - wow) and that's the reason you did not follow though on what you told the daughter. And, can he help you with the limb, since your chain saw is toast. Don't need to mention it's his tree limb. You be nice. If he gets an attitude, take him off your Christmas card list and go rent a chain saw.

As for a tree falling on your property or house - when a neighbor's tree falls on your property, especially if it causes damage, it's your insurance that pays up. We know this from experience when one of our trees went airborne into a neighbor's house during Hugo. Our insurance company said the neighbor's company pays the tab. It would be the same if his trees fell on my house - my insurance company pays. That was 1989 and I do not believe this process has changed.

If my tree was across my neighbor's yard, I'd get a chain saw and get to work as a matter of courtesy and being a good neighbor. Obviously, the size of the tree would have a bearing. That's when the insurance companies come into play.

Yes, he did say that. That's why I said I would leave a note. Things can fester and cause unintended problems when you leave them unaddressed for too long.

Here is a couple of pictures to show this isnt a 5 minute job that requires no effort as some seem to think.

Well I think its pretty clear that it is your problem. Time to put your big boy pants on, and go get at it. Seriously it might not be a 5 minute job but its not that big of a deal. Like I said in my last post. You take small problems and create huge problems. The world has big issues, this isn't one of them. Quit being a drama queen and life will get a lot easier. If you are a man I think you should have your man card revoked.

The the amount of time you spent posting on here about the limb, you could have cut it up, mulched it, and planted a new tree. Man up dude, Man Up.
