Trees Near the Property Line:Who Pays to Trim in California?

Trees and neighbors - sometimes they don't mix wellIf you live in Los Gatos, or anywhere along the Santa Cruz Mountains like Almaden, Saratoga or Los Altos, you probably live with trees very near your home, as the San Jose area values its “urban forest”. And often enough, those trees arch over fences and property lines.

Ever wonder how tree ownership works in regard to property lines? Well, recently I found out. I had a tree and property line question here in Silicon Valley so called the California Association of Realtors legal hotline and spoke to an attorney about it. The lawyer referenced case law and sent me info on it: Miller and Starr.
