My neighbor's trees are growing over onto my property. What can be done?

If you know where your property line is, you are permitted, though not required, to cut any tree limbs encroaching on your property. If you remove the limbs, you are responsible for their disposal. This is available free of charge at any Montgomery County Solid Waste District location. If the tree is alive and otherwise healthy, the township cannot require the owner of the tree to cut it.
