Attachment 1012 (external - login to view)
We live in a rural area on a small farm. In behind us is a large plot of land with cattle. The person who owns this land lives down the road from us. We had never met until 10 days ago. About two weeks ago there was a major storm and the tree on his property was knocked down falling over the fence onto our property. Not knowing who owned the property we were trying to find someone willing to come out and cut the tree up and haul it away for the firewood and we would repair the fence ourselves.
While we were out at the back fence cleaning up debris a man pulled up on the opposite side of the fence and beckoned to us. When we went over my boyfriend held out his hand and introduced himself. This person who did not take his hand said "I know who you are and when are you going to pay for your half of replacing our fence. Then he proceeded to tell us what type of fence he wanted to put up. No mention of how the tree was going to be removed or sorry about the damage to the trees on our property.
We decided that we didn't have a need for a new fence and since the fence in question was 10inches on our property that there was nothing that he could do.
Now we still have to figure out how to remove the tree. Any suggestions?
