Good question Ronald, generally you could cut the roots back to the property line, but you may want to contact an arborist to make sure that you do it in a way that doesn’t kill the tree. If you cutting the roots back kills the tree, you might be liable for the lose of the tree. You might also send a letter to the neighbor to let the neighbor know that you plan to cut the roots back to stop damage to your property.
