What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Pennsylvania
I cannot believe that things have come to this, but my neighbor leaves me with no other choice.
Here's the story in brief:
I have a neighbor who is 76 years old with nothing more to do than start trouble for his good, law-obeying neighbors (been harassing us over our yard for about 4-5 years in subtle ways). He is quite eccentric and very mean, wanting nothing more than to control how his neighbors keep their yards (by the way, none of the neighbors is negligent of maintaining their years by "reasonable" or legal standards.). But his real issue occurs in the autumn when leaves fall from the "neighboring" trees onto his yard.
On a more personal note, he's been playing mind games with me and my family for about 4-5 years. He hates leaves falling into his yard from our big tree and thus takes it upon himself to blow all the leaves back into our yard that he believes comes from our tree. He even encroaches onto our property to blow them back over. This cannot be legal.
After doing some research online, I am starting to believe that this is against the law because leaves are deemed a "natural product". Once they fall into his yard from natural forces (i.e., wind), they become his responsibility. Should he desire to remove them, he must proceed in a legal way: rake and bag them. To blow them back over with a leaf blower constitutes a form of vandalism since the leaves no longer belong to me once they leave my property ("natural" trash cannot be returned to my yard).
It's also a form of harassment over something we cannot control.
What say you, my legal experts? Am I in the wrong or in the right?
I'd appreciate any help (this neighbor has crossed the line [no pun intended], and am done dealing with being harassed)
