What if I am concerned or would like to file a complaint about a neighbor’s tree?

The City does not get involved between neighbors unless the complaint is regarding a breach in municipal code. You may contact us to see if this is the case.  If not, Neighbor law covers the many disputes that may occur between two individuals that live side by side. Do an internet search or consult a book such as Neighbor Law:  Fences, Trees, Boundaries, & Noise by Cora Jordan and Emily Doskow
