It is suggested that the neighbor be notified, and that some resolution be agreed upon. The updated ordinance includes damage to a neighboring primary residence as a qualifying reason for removal. The removal application still must be submitted by the tree owner, not the neighbor.
Damage to things other than a primary residence, such as lifted or cracked patios or walkways, damaged fences, broken sprinklers, or cracked pools do not qualify as a reason for removal. This applies to both protected trees in your yard or in a neighboring yard.
Please note that the City does not enter into any dispute between neighbors on this matter.
