Check your state's laws regarding trees. In most states, any branches hanging over a neighbor's yard is considered THEIR property, and therefore THEIR problem when they fall. Any part of a tree hanging over a property line isn't your tree parts.

Depends on whether the tree is an obvious liability - it’s visibly damaged, diseased, dead, etc. In which case it’s the responsibility of the person who had the trunk on their property. If it’s not visibly a liability, it’s almost always classified as an “act of god”.

That law doesn't exist, sorry. Because I'm sure the OP would have shit her panties if they attempted to trim HER tree's branch. Are you a lawyer? No? Then stop fucking giving legal advice

That’s considered an act of god, they can’t sue you. Even if if damaged something they couldn’t sue you and insurance company’s don’t cover act of god accidents.
Only know this cause is happened to a friend

Property law, they're entirely correct. And the reason they could sue is for endangerment. Even though it hit nothing on the way down, it was your responsibility to trim whatever hangs over into their property line. And since it could have caused bodily harm, and I'm willing to bet they've asked you to look at the tree previously too, no pity from me. Know your laws, be nice to your neighbors, and just adult the fuck up please? Can we all agree? This pity party needs to stop. Poor you? How about grow up YDI
