Summer is almost here in New York and if you plan to stay at home more often, a fence may be a good idea for the yard. Especially if you have pets or kids. Fences are great to help keep and eye on kids and dogs. But be careful how you build that fence. There are some laws in New York State that you may want to look in to.
If things are not going well between you and the neighbor, be careful not to make the fence too high. In New York State, "spite fences" come with a penalty.
You can also sue your neighbor for private nuisance if they build a "spite fence" on their property. In New York, a spite fence is one that exceeds 10 feet high and was built to block your enjoyment of light or air.
Even if you have a great relationship with those around your neighborhood, it may be a good idea to separate the border with a tree or two. There are also laws in just about every local municipality that deal with where exactly a tree can be placed. But what if there is already a tree in place? Be careful how you deal with them as well.
According to FindLaw.com:
While you can trim the branches of a tree that extend onto your property, you may not trespass on your neighbor's property or cause damage to or kill the tree. If you do damage the tree, your neighbor can sue you for triple the stumpage value of the tree.
