My neighbor's roots


If I am digging a hole in my property and I encounter roots from my neighbor's tree, I am entitled to cut those roots. If the roots are within 16 cubits (about 29 feet) of my neighbor's tree, I must give him the pieces of the roots, for they are considered a part of his tree; otherwise, I may take the wood.

(Code of Jewish Law Choshen Mishpat 155:30; Me'irat Einayim 155:68)

Have a great day,
