Bad neighbor's bad fence row
I want to put up a new privacy fence. My very hateful, somewhat crazy, neighbor has a rotted, falling-down fence running the length of our back yards. Her 'garbage trees', poison ivy, and scrub brush grow through and over her fence and into my yard. It has gotten so embarrassing that I won't have guests in my yard. Ms Neighbor refuses to remove her fence row garbage trees. Because they grow through the way they do, it will make putting my new fence up impossible. The largest tree has grown 2' into my property (I offered to cut it down when it was small, but she wouldn't let me). The rest are things like small elms, wild honeysuckle trees (that don't even bloom), and mulberries. Since she refuses to remove them, I'll have to pay to have them cut back (legal for me to do, as I understand it)...which will eat up my fence budget. Any suggestions from others who have lived next to a person like this? I've NEVER had to live this way in my entire life!
