we have a set of trees along the road infront of our house that gives privacy. The new neightboors dont like the trees saying they are obstructing the view from their driveway that they need to pull out. They have been mentioning calling the town to call have them comeover and cut back the trees. Obvsioiusy Im not happy abou this as i will lose a major amount of privacy.
I had orignally, when they first asked, cut teh trees back so all the branches were 3ft from the road but they again mentioned today that they didnt like the trees. The real problem in my opinion, which is really beside the point, is that there are telephone poles and road signs which are obsuring their view when they stop at the end of their driveway. So they claim the only way to see oncoming cars as they pull out is when they are about 6ft back from where their driveway meets the road and they use this to judge when its safe to pull out. This view from 6ft back from the end of the driveway is where our line starts to obstruct the view of approximatly 100yds up the road. Ive been in their driveway and think they are just being silly.
any thoughts and ideas?
can the town just come over and cut the trees down and cut them back?
what are the rules?
this is in connecticut, if it matters.
edges of tree brances, in closest proximity to road, are 12ft from the center line of the road
