Negligent Trespass Example Case

Ivan Katzer
Tree Expert

During the construction and development of a commercial office site, the developer removed a row of boundary-line trees that he felt detracted from the site. The adjoining property owner was a church that felt that the row of trees provided a measure of screening from the new development and sought compensation for their loss as a result of the negligent trespass. I was able to determine a measure of value for this loss and the developer agreed to pay the church for damages and loss.
