What to Do About Your Neighbor’s Troublesome Tree: Advice From Sparta's Best Arborists, Sparta, Georgia

As natural and beautiful as trees are, they still must be cared for properly to prevent property damage. In tricky situations involving a neighbor’s tree, an arborist can be especially useful. Tidwell's Tree Service of Sparta, GA, has been helping residents with their tree trimming and tree maintenance services for over 30 years. With such extensive experience, these professionals can masterfully assess how to keep any type of tree healthy and safe.


It can be a complicated legal situation when a tree on your neighbor’s property has branches that extend onto your yard. Fallen branches have the potential to damage your car, your home, or even a member of your family. Since the tree is on your neighbor’s property, though, it’s their responsibility to maintain it.

The first step to resolving the issue is contacting your neighbor to discuss the tree. In an amicable situation, the best course of action is to bring in an expert arborist such as Tidwell’s Tree Service. A skilled tree surgeon will arrive and either inform you there’s nothing to worry about or strategically cut and trim until the risk has been minimized.

If your neighbor rebuffs your approaches, it still makes sense to request an assessment from Tidwell’s Tree Service. To protect your property, you should file a nuisance complaint with your municipality. A professional opinion explaining the danger will go a long way toward legitimizing your claim and pressuring your neighbor to do something about the troublesome tree.

Whenever a tree presents a threat to people or property, the wise course of action involves enlisting the aid of a top arborist. You can reach Tidwell's Tree Service by calling (478) 452-0234 or visiting their website.
