Have you talked to your neighbors? Our tree was growing over onto our neighbor’s property and we weren’t aware (we don’t use the backyard that much). She came over and asked us to trim it back to the yard line, so we did. Problem solved.
If the owner of the tree won’t trim his/her tree, you do have a right to trim it yourself to the property line. However, I’m not sure what the law is in DC regarding if you can be held liable if you harm the tree in trimming it.
