I LIVE IN FLORIDA AND LAST YEAR WE HAD 2 HURRICANES. I REALLY DON'T FEEL SAFE!

Are they on common area or on a public parkway? (Do you maintain the grass they are on or does the association?) If it does in fact belong to the association, contact them in writing and request that they trim the trees back due to safety concerns. Then, if they will not, at least you have a record of your request . If anything happens you will then be in a better position to possibly recoup damages due to negligence or lack of due diligence.

I was advised thatif the trees are encroaching on your property you have the right to trim them in line with the property line in Florida. This is what I did, of course I had to absorb the costs.
