Default This is why we can't have nice things...

New fence, didn't even make it a full week until one of the neighbors Pecan limbs fell on it.

There's 5 other trees just like it to the left along the fence line... and no, the neighbor didn't pitch in a dime for his "half" or help me remove a single twig or existing chain link to clear the fence line.

and guess who got to remove this?

Curious if I can compel him to trim his branches back so they don't over hang my property? My electric service line in particular.

Sue for damages. Looks like about $5.37 so far. I was under the impression you could trim any limbs that hung over the property line.

Looks like some of the base of that tree is on your side of the line

Piece of solid copper wire inserted into a hole slightly larger than said wire will kill the whole tree I have been told

Do the trees make pecans and do any of them fall in your yard?
I would probably not make to much of a fuss about it.

Lived here 20 years and can't recall ever seeing a pecan from them. I usually wouldn't make a fuss, but for the fact that I just shelled out good money for this fence.

If I set up a GoFundMe page for you and 20 of us pledge .30, you'll have enough to replace said damaged fence component. You donate the 2:46 minutes of labor...TADA!

Nope

Something about copper that trees don't like

If you put copper sulfate in your drain lines it will kill any roots that get in. If you use too much it will kill the trees.

Never tried it but hear it works

Looks like you built a solid fence!

The upside is the new Pickett will fit right in. If it had happened next year after the fence sun bleached you would be able to see the repair.

Well if you aren't getting pecans, maybe you get some good shade from the neighbor's trees?

Do the trees get the bag worms every summer?? And who gets to spray the trees??

Pecan limbs are brittle, with five trees you've got a never ending supply. I'd get a bundle of extra pickets and set them up where they weather the same as the fence pickets you already put up. Just saying....

Ok, you're whining about 1 fence pickets getting broken from a limb that fell DURING A STORM, an "Act of God". Those trees provide A LOT of value to your neighbor and YOU. Factor in the aesthetic beauty, the Energy Savings from shade and keeping your back yard cooler, the nut production, etc....and you should be thanking your neighbor. It looks like most of the limb/debris is on his side anyway.

Should be an easy fix.

You want him to trim the limbs back but you have a tree on the fence line.

Tree damage plus fence, claim it on homeowners. Saw it on another thread how you can get big bucks for damage to trees on homeowners.
