    How do you know the fence is 3" onto your property?

    Why is your neighbor insisting that you pay for the dead bushes?

    Why do you want to build a fence alongside your neighbor's?

    3" is probably not worth the expense of fighting to regain at this time. Talk to a lawyer about ways, other than going to court, to prevent him from accruing time toward an adverse claim. Permissive use comes to mind.

    If the bushes are all on your side of the fence he built, then I don't see that he has any say what you do with them as long as they don't interfere with his use of his property. You are under no obligation to provide shade for a portion of his yard.

    I usually don't like spite fences - in this case that means one fence built right next to another. It is usually a sign that one or both neighbors are crazy. As a surveyor, if I see a spite fence before giving an estimate, my price goes up considerably because I know that I will run into problems.

    You do what you need to do to keep you and your children safe though. You already have a survey, now get a lawyer for the purpose of getting your neighbor to back off.

    Good luck.
