I've known about this problem at one of my rentals for sometime now. Wrote a letter to the neighbor in question back in 2018 and so far crickets. The problem is three mature redwood trees (maybe 70' tall) border my property and the roots are lifting my driveway and no doubt will begin lifting the garage foundation in short order. I dropped the hammer last week and got a attorney on it to the tune of $3,750 for the retainer. This year has been a doozy to put it mildly for rental property expense. I was wondering if anybody else has tree stories? I'm braced for the phone book.
