Question: I have a large tree in my front yard and some of the branches hang over my neighbor’s property. My neighbor moved in about a year ago and knew the branches were there when he moved in. Now he is complaining that there is a large dead branch hanging over his driveway and he wants me to remove it. Do I have to remove it? You may have already answered your own question if you see that there is a large dead branch hanging over your neighbor’s property. What do you think will eventually happen to that dead branch? Falling tree branches can be very destructive. In a tragic incident, a falling branch killed a woman in Central Park.
