As non-controversial/adversarial as plants and landscaping might seem, there are instances - fortunately quite rare - in which disputes do arise.
Examples of litigation in which my expertise and testimony has been called upon include:
I've also mediate numerous disputes between contractors and property owners, and between neighbors regarding damage to existing plant materials and lawns caused by a variety of activities including excavation, pesticide applications, pruning practices, etc.
While it's my hope that these issues remain rare in their occurrence, should you find yourself in such a situation, please do call me as early in the process as possible. Oftentimes, an unbiased evaluation and the sharing of research-based information can lead to a resolution that's satisfactory to all parties without protracted, expensive and divisive litigation.
