    My neighbour has been asking me cutting down a tree in my backyard. He arranged a tree person who promised the job will be finished in one day. I agreed. But the tree person ruined my back yard and lawn during his job and the work was not finished in one week. After that, I don't have any person at home during the working hours to let the tree person into the back yard. As such, I had to ask that person cease working. Six months later, I received a letter from court for the hearing that my neighbour ask me to remove the tree.
    What can I do to prepare for the hearing? Am I doing the wrong thing?

    Is the tree hanging over into their property? Or are there any Overhanging branches or exposed roots that could cause property damage and/or personal injury?
