Q. Vines from a neighboring vacant lot are encroaching onto my property, into my trees and over my fence. Is there any ordinance concerning vegetation from a vacant lot becoming a nuisance?

A. According to New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Jerry Brewer, if something a neighbor does is disturbing your peace, you can report it to the Sheriff’s Office and it will be forwarded to an environmental detective for investigation.

Brewer said such an incident falls under the nuisance law ordinance.
