My wife and I have been having some issues with our neighbors’ large tree. The tree has encroached over the shared fence, causing damage to our deck.
The damage has since been repaired by our neighbor’s insurance company.
However, the deck repair company made note that the tree roots were growing under the fence and into our yard. Eventually this may cause damage to the deck again unless the tree is removed.
The insurance company will not cover the cost to remove the tree and our neighbors are not in a financial position to cover the cost.
Any ideas? We really don’t want to take legal action against our neighbors and are seeking peaceful solutions.
