    Yeah he can. It might be called 'Limiting his liability', as the branch could break off and damage Your property.

    Of course he can. It's his tree. He can cut off as much as he wants. Or cut the tree completely down. If the tree is on his property he has all the control or permission he needs.

    Nah, let him leave it there and possibly break during a storm and damage your home.

    It sounds like your neighbor is being responsible for his tree....why complain???

    Technically he cannot enter your property without your permission. That's trespass. Good neighbors would readily agree to this.   Ideally he'd come to you and ask permission and you'd happily agree.

    If he must step onto your property to do it, without your permission, no, your neighbor cannot trespass on your property.

    No need to get temperamental at this time. Avoiding neighbor wars is easy if you can open the lines of communication. Perhaps you can tell your neighbor that you will choose to prune overhanging branches from now on in order to avoid liability issues of him entering your property. Say it with a smile.

    no , then he is trespassing and destroying you property , he can only work if it is on hes property , nothing hanging over .but then why do you want a branch over hanging your property if it aint your trees .

    If it's on your property, how can it be his tree?

    Yes, he can do that.
