    Need HELP with letter to neighbors about tree!!

    I have had a lot of arborists come to look at our own trees on our property. As said before we had a magnolia tree cut down on the front lawn because it was full of termite. We had another "nameless" tree cut down in our back yard because it looked like termites were eating at the bark... didn't see the critters but it looked bad and the tree was up against the house and gutter. WE also had to cut down an medium oak tree in the middle of the yard. I don't know why anyone would plant a tree in the middle of a small yard, but we have a huge oak tree on the side that gave plenty of shade so we didn't miss the medium sized oak tree. We wanted the space for the kids to play. Also we need to chop a small crepe myrtle tree at the end of our driveway. They have gorgeious pink blooms but the tree is old and gnarly and diseased. We can always replace it.

    SO we have had lots of arborist come by to give estimates for these "choppings" and grinding the stumps. ALL of them have been concerned with this ONE neighborhs pecan tree. It is NOT on our property but it directly overhangs the cabana (just a place with a counter and sink and an outside fridge/freezer) and this OLD, OLD pecan tree also overhangs our pool equipement (heater) and pool. So it has been dropping 2 foot branches regulalry since we bought this old house. We just pick them up and put them out for garbage. But now our "old" gardener comes back from Honduras and mentions the danger of this pecan tree FALLING on our property and causing major damage to the pool we are re-surfacing and possably ruing the brand new heating equipment.

    So we need to put the neighbor on notice that the tree is dangerous and we will hold him responsable should the branches fall on our property and damage our cabana, pool, or pool equipment. I think the letter needs to be written by a lawyer. Any ideas on how to write it?

    Let the lawyer write it!

    You really should let the lawyer write it because s/he will know the exact statutes in your area. However, writing out a rough draft in a Word document will save you a little money because the law office won't have to do as much writing for you. Also, you might be able to research online to see exactly what your local laws say about it.

    Oh, and you are very nice--I'd toss the broken limbs back over the fence!
