Last thursday, my neighbor came over and pointed out a pine tree "just on my side of the property line" that was "dead". I went and looked at it and it looked dead, but it still had pine needles and full bark on it, but the pine needles were all brown. I told him that I'd call the tree service that I've used and been very happy with and head out of town for the weekend. Fast forward to yesterday, I come home to find that the neighbor has hired a tree service and is having 15 trees cut down. 1 of which is the one supposedly on my property. It has already been cut and I am informed that I owe $400.00. The crazy neighbor is cutting the other 14 trees, "before they die". The tree service that he picked doesn't top trees. They just use a Bobcat and push on it while cutting the tree. Using this master skill they have dropped two trees on my property damaging my other trees on the way down.
So that's the info and the end of my rant. Now my questions. What is my recourse? I have to live next to these people, I've already voiced my displeasure about the situation. I'm fine with taking care of dead trees on my property, but I wanted to use the company that I'm comfortable with. What about the damage to my property from this tree service? Crazy neighbor is very apologetic, but this is pretty ridiculous.
