Cutting Your Neighbor’s Tree Branches & Maryland Property Law

If you live in Maryland and own property, you own the property from the center of the planet to the useful area of sky above the land! Whether you can cut your neighbor’s tree that has branches hanging over your land, the Maryland courts follow the “Hawaiian Rule” whereby the owner of the tree has no obligation to control the growth of the tree or to pay for damage to your property caused by the overhanging limbs. So, Maryland residents are required to cut any offending vegetation at their own risk and expense at the property line, but no farther. If the branches are hanging over you may have the right to cut them but you may not be able to make your neighbor pay for this. Before cutting those branches I suggest you speak with a Maryland property law attorney. It’s also a good idea to come to an agreement with your neighbor before taking any action.
