    Not sure if it’s the same in Canada (or even the rest of the US) but we can’t put branches, grass, brush into our garbage cans. It must be picked up separately from other trash. If that’s the case they may not have wanted to make arrangements for that.

    If not, I would be a bit annoyed that they didn’t just throw it away (I mean really? they already picked it up, they might as well throw it away). Good idea though not throwing it back on their side 🙂

    If the branch broke because the tree wasn’t healthy or maintained well, legally I think you are responsible. If it was a storm or something, I believe they consider that an “act of god” and the neighbor is responsible.

    That being said, I’d just throw them in my own garbage. It’s your tree afterall.

    I’d just leave it on the fence! Depends which neighbor though. I have great neighbors on one side who would just throw it out themselves, but the ones on the other side are weird.

    I’d just put them in my trash because it isn’t worth drama, but I would totally be annoyed. Because seriously– how lazy can they be?? 

     

    I have a similar issue with our neighbor. We live in a community where all mailboxes are on one side of the road in sets of 2. So on my across-the-street neighbor’s front lawn is a single pole that has both his and our mailboxes on it. Well we get quite a bit of junk at our property (random sales flyers and other assorted crap) that either gets tossed in front of the mailbox or hung from the hook on the side of it. And like, EVERY DAY instead of just tossing ours out when he tosses his out (or just leaving it be so I can get it after work) he picks it up and shoves it inside our mailbox. Which pisses me off because more often than not lately it is raining so all our mail gets wet from the wet bag full of sales crap he shoves in the mailbox. And like— why?? I know he is the most anal person that has ever existed when it comes to his lawn, but either give me 6 hours to get to it or throw it out. Arrghhh. Neighbors.

    I would be more annoyed if it was THEIR tree and they did. I agree that you shouldn’t start a neighbour war over this but it would be funny if you just left it there forever lol

    @CorgiTales:  He should not be touching your mail!! If it is hanging on your hook then he needs to leave it and figure out how to deal with the fact that he chose to live in a place where that’s the mailbox situation.

    OP, it would annoy me, but I would also let it go and not start a war over it. I voted that you should leave them though. I would just wait and see what your neighbors do when you don’t remove them.

    I agree that this is probably pregnancy rage.  As another PP said, here if you want to throw out yard waste, you have to go to the City Hall and pay for a special paper bag specifically for yard waste.  I live in an apartment at the moment, but if my neighbour’s tree fell in my yard, I’d probably be tempted to just throw it back over as well… their tree, they should be the one to deal with it.

    definitely would bother me. cause its just like… really though you couldn’t just throw them away you had to take the time to balance them on the fence… and i would leave them there because i would treat them like they are decoration. bahaaa.

    Haha wow I’d toss them over “by accident” as long as you don’t think it’ll start a war. Little victories. 😉

    yeah, it’s a little passive aggressive of them, but I understand how they might have been annoyed. I’d be annoyed if branches from my neighbor’s trees were falling in my lawn! What would you have rather them done? Carried the branch to your front door and politely informed you that it had fallen on their property and then handed it to you, lol?
