I'm in Maryland and have a neighbor who has a dying/dead tree on his property. I'm worried it or some of its large branches will fall in my yard, damaging some smaller trees and/or at least requiring removal.
Question- How do I inform my neighbor of my concerns in a 'nice' way that give me legal standing to recover any of my costs from him if the tree falls in my yard?
Another tree fell from his yard into mine a few years ago, and he never made the slightest gesture to compensate me or even share costs of removal ($600).
Do I need to send him a registered letter? What should it say?
