Boundaries – Trees and Hedges

Parties had adjoining land and the plaintiff’s had a hedge near the boundary line. The defendants trimmed the side of the hedge which faced their property and plaintiff sued for damages. One whose property is invaded by the boughs of trees growing on adjoining premises may cut them at the point where they enter his property without claiming any interest or ownership therein.
