proactive management of dying trees
We have many large ash and oak trees along the boundary with a neighbor. None of them are in good shape. The ashes are in decline, and the oaks are being undermined by water runoff. Last week a large oak with root rot fell into the neighbor's yard. While we are not responsible for the damage (fence & hedge) and cleanup ($1400), obviously we don't want it to happen again. I can't afford to have them all taken down. Is there some way I can direct their fall onto our property at least? What is the most efficient way of managing a large number of problematic trees?
