Trees in Louisiana
Does anyone know what the law is, in Louisisana, (or where I can find it) regarding who is responsible for damage caused by fallen tree limbs and/or trees? And who is responsible for removing fallen limbs and/or trees? I am also trying to find out if limbs hanging over my property line (onto my neighbor's lot) are my responsibility or his.
I have a beautiful white oak and my neighbor is trying to have me cut it down because a limb fell on a car in his driveway a few months ago and another one fell on his roof damaging 13 tiles. I moved into this neighborhood 2 years ago because of the abundance of trees and had every tree in my yard inspected then. My tree expert told me that this white oak was one of the best ones in my yard. Please help as I do not want to lose this beautiful tree!!
