Can i cut down a branch of my neighbours tree (he rents the house as is in the far east at the moment) without having to get his permission first? It is quite rotten and is right over my garden shed.
Check at the local Town Hall. It may be the same as the UK were you must get the Councils permission.
Did you find out what you need to do - if anything?
We had a similar problem last year - we just went ahead and cut it - no problem!!
