This is an easy one that just requires a little bit of applied common sense. If the tree branch is hanging onto your property, you can trim it. Your neighbor can’t, because doing so (at least without your permission) would be a trespass onto your property. Likewise, you can’t trim the tree past your property line without your neighbor’s consent.
The only caveat here is that if a branch hanging into your yard causes some kind of damage to your property, s/he’s liable.
Again, common sense dictates you should talk to your neighbor about taking care of the situation.
