When I asked him if it was possible to trim a couple of branches he basically had a meltdown on me... saying there isnt many trees in the neighbourhood and thats the reason we have so much wind etc etc etc, and why am i parking my RV so close to the fence etc etc etc. Since he loves trees, I plan on planting the dirtiest trees that I can find so that I can return the favour of piles of leaves that end up in his new pool
little does he know that his trees are shrinking late at night ...
I was under the impression that what hangs over your property IS your property. Is there a local code? Can you call the code folks and ask what the local rule might be? Honestly if the trees interfere with my enjoyment of my own property I'd trim them as I saw fit (straight up from the fence line). If in your area that is indeed the rule / code, I'd offer to let him do the trimming (seeing as he's so particular) and if he didn't want to then I'd do it myself. He's expecting you to let him have use of your property (for the growth of his trees) without compensation. Seems unfair to me.
Hello it's your property you should be able to park your RV where you see fit so long as you don't violate local codes. If he doesn't like looking at it let him plant some sort of lovely vine to shield his view.
