Blew Yard Waste to My Property

Ranting. Neighbor in backyard used a leaf blower to blow leaves and sticks from his property to mine. The leaves are from branches overhanging on his side but the tree is on my side. They fall on his carport next to the fence. When confronted, he was aggressive and hostile telling me it's my responsibility to cut the branches. Anyway, next time he does it, I'll have it on my Ring cam and I'll be filing a police report of trespassing/illegal dumping.

Our neighbor has done this for 3+ years since we moved in. If we didn't have a landlord that paid for gardeners I'd definitely me more upset.

Either way our neighbor is a pathetic waste of space who certainly die sad and alone

Choose your battle GROUND carefully - you still gotta live there everyday.

Definitely, but at least I have a camera for next time they do something like this and I can file a police report of trespassing/littering

Or how about you trim the branches so it's not overhanging on his property.

Because legally the neighbor is required to maintain the branches that are over his property or deal with the leaves that fall from the tree onto his property.

Because it is not a hazard?

because this is normal and even if u trim the branches, leaves will still fall in his yard, it is the nature of trees.

Depends on the state one lives in, where I am it’s my responsibility to maintain a neighbor’s overhanging branches. I feel you though, I’ve got a similar neighbor who tosses debris from another neighbor’s tree into my yard. Another neighbor hired a teenager to clean up his lawn and the kid threw broken sprinklers, rakes and branches onto my property. It’s the absolute pinnacle of assholism, I’ll clean it up and throw it in their trash, but I’ll also call it out. Good luck. Bad neighbors are on the f*cking rise.

Yeah that's messed up. Fortunately this neighbor is behind me and I don't have to see them unless I look over the fence. I hope karma pays them back for their douchebaggery.

Collect up all the waste and have a bonfire when they’re trying to relax in their garden

I feel for you. My headache blows yard waste in to the street (we have motorcycles around us) and in winter clears his driveway by blowing the snow in to my yard throwing gravel at my house.

"Headache"! That's exactly what these people are. Inconsiderate dbags.

Mine just did this today. Seriously, my husband went out to trim some branches (including those) and mow the lawn and realized they had trimmed the branches and thrown them into our yard. We just laughed at the ridiculousness.
