    Smile Property Line, Trees and HOA

    My question involves real estate located in the State of: Maryland
    My trees and shrubs have been in place for more than three years. The HOA has never said anything to me now they are insisting that I cut them back. In my front yard I work with my neighbors to ensure that they are not annoyed with my tree limbs. In the back yard my tree limbs have grown over the fence. Over the fence is the common alley, so they are not in anyone's yard, they are in the air. I have been told that if the HOA has not said anything within three years they cannot do anything. My question is the property line reserved to the ground or does in also include air space? Can my HOA make me trim my trees if they have been in the same condition for over six years? Thank you.

    I have no access to your community rules or bylaws, so I am not in a position to tell you if you can be fined for not trimming your trees to the property line, or if they can trim the trees and assess the cost against you. I suggest you review the relevant documentation.
