My house is on a fairly small corner lot in a busy part of the neighborhood and has 11 huge King Palm Trees on the property. My landlord paid to have the trees in the back yard trimmed because they were interfering with power lines. However, they will not trim the ones in front, saying they are my responsibility. The trees are messy and quite dangerous when the heavy fronds fall off. The nuts are a constant slip hazard on my sidewalk. I pleaded with them to consider trimming them. They repeated to me that it was stated in the lease that the tenant is responsible for routine yard maintenance. It will cost me at least $350 to have them trimmed. Is there any way they could be forced to pay? Thank you
