Advice: Are land owners liable for damaged caused trees and hedges
Q I am a landowner and have an issue with mature deciduous trees which are located approximately six feet inside a ditch which adjoins a road. The trees are of great value to me as they are located on the boundary of my lands. I would be sorry to have to cut them back, but I am concerned about my liability if any part of the trees were to fall over the ditch onto the roadway or even into an adjoining landowner's property. I am also concerned about potential liability from overhanging trees and hedges in some of my fields.
