Tree Trimming Woodbridge VA: If a neighbor’s tree branches hang over your property, you might have questions related to who is responsible for trimming the branch. It depends on whether or not the branch is touching the ground on your property.

When you purchase a house, you are usually required to get property surveys. These surveys will show your property's boundaries, and which trees on the border belong to you or another homeowner. The trunks of these trees along your property line are considered parts of your property, and therefore, your responsibility.

Sometimes, it can be difficult to determine where a tree is and who is responsible for taking care of it. If you don't have an existing property survey or additional information, you may need to have the property officially surveyed so that the trees are accurately placed on your neighbor's side of your land or vice versa.

If a tree trunk resides on your property, you are responsible for ensuring it is maintained. This entails making sure any tree on your premises is healthy and all necessary safety precautions have been taken.
