„aventura trimfala si planetara a unei bauturi cindva preparate de ciobanii din Abisinia”
„intrigant negru”
„bautura fara credinta si fara lege, care cultiva spiritul critic, prin esenta ostila oricarei supuneri”
„demon delicios (negru ca dracu, fierbinte ca iadul, pur ca un inger, dulce ca amorul)”
„ar fi pacat sa lasam doar paginilor o bautura atit de delicioasa; sa-l invingem pe Satana binecuvintind-o, ca sa o transformam intr-o bautura cu adevarat crestina” (Papa Clement al VIII-lea)
„cafeaua este o bautura care ne adoarme daca nu o bem”.

    The case law is this:D v. [7] Cynthia S. Jenkins, attorney for appellants. [8] Craig S. Larsen, attorney for respondents. [9] Furman, Cohen and Ashbey. [10] Furman [208 NJSuper Page 33] [11] Liability for tree root damage to a neighbor property is at issue on this appeal. The trial court awarded $2,960 to defendants on their counterclaim for damages and for abatement of a nuisance: tree roots which had spread onto their property from a maple tree growing on plaintiffs property, cracking their waylite block boundary fence. Plaintiffs had planted the maple tree about three and a half feet from the common boundary 14 years before, three years before the construction of defendants boundary fence. [12] The focus of the brief non jury trial was on plaintiffs action for abatement of defendants boundary fence as a nuisance and for consequential damages for diminishment of their own property value. The trial court dismissed plaintiffs action because their only proof was that the boundary fence was unsightly and aesthetically displeasing to them, insufficient as a matter of law to support a finding of a nuisance, Cahill v. Super. No issue challenging dismissal of plaintiffs complaint is raised before us. Plaintiffs sole issue on appeal is that no liability should lie on the counterclaim against them for unforeseen damage to their neighbors wall arising out of root growth from a previously planted tree. [13] Only two witnesses testified at trial: Henry D one of the two plaintiffs, and Patricia Guglietta, one of the two defendants. D testimony was directed solely to his claim, not to the counterclaim. According to Guglietta testimony, the maple tree was planted around 1970 „about the same time” that she and her husband installed a chain link boundary fence; the Gugliettas removed the chain link fence around 1973 and replaced it with their waylite block fence; the maple tree roots were not „established anywhere near that wall” when the Gugliettas dug down to put in foundation footings for their masonry wall; approximately eleven years later when they noticed the crack in the wall, they dug down and discovered [208 NJSuper Page 34] „gigantic” roots from the nearby maple tree up to 30 feet in length „coming through the wall.” A masonry contractor estimate of $2,960 for repair of the wall, to which Guglietta testified, was unchallenged at trial and is unchallenged before us as to reasonableness. The judgment for defendants on their counterclaim awarded damages but no specific relief. Under common law principles, defendants were entitled to cut off invading tree roots by exercising self help, 2 Thompson, Real Property (5 ed. 1980), ? 336 at 155; Michalson v. Nutting, 275 Mass. 490 (1931); Colombe v. City of Niagara Falls, 162 Misc. [15] The trial court relied upon two New Jersey cases, Ackerman v. Ackerman holds that overhanging tree branches may constitute a nuisance for which an action for damages lies. Wegener recognizes the common law right of self help to lop off overhanging branches to the property line but no further. [16] According to the trial court „as a matter of logic, . . . no distinction can be made between roots and branches.” That approach overlooks real distinctions between the two. Unlike tree branches, tree roots are largely underground and evident only upon digging down; their extent and girth may be uncertain and unpredictable; they are not commonly pruned or otherwise tended; their severance may endanger the tree stability in high winds and rainstorms.fn1 A tree root system may extend vertically downward or may spread laterally close [208 NJSuper Page 35] to the surface. The relatively uncomplicated law governing invasion of adjoining property by tree branches may not be fairly applicable under all circumstances to tree roots. [17] The trial court also relied upon two out of state cases, Buckingham v. Elliott, 62 Miss. Bergin, 285 Minn. Buckingham affirms an award of damages for injury to a well by tree roots from a mulberry tree, which the court refers to as a „noxious” tree, growing on the adjoining property. Holmberg affirms a judgment ordering destruction of a tree, the roots of which caused injury to a neighbor fence, sidewalk and basement, and affirms on cross appeal the dismissal of a damage claim „due to [plaintiffs failure to take advantage of earlier opportunities to remove roots [through self help].” [18] Elsewhere in reported decisions, there is general agreement that tree roots extending under a neighbor land are owned by the owner of the land on which the tree trunk stands; that the owner of a tree has no right to its sustenance from adjoining land; and that a neighbor may resort to self help to sever and remove invading tree roots. [19] The rule set out in Michalson, supra, is that damage caused by tree roots spreading from an adjoining property is damnum absque injuria and that the only redress is self help. Michalson is followed expressly in Sterling v. of App.1950). Colombe, supra, and Smith v. Holt, 174 Va. 2d 492 (1939), are in accord with the result in Michalson, although Smith v. Holt by dictum recognizes a right of action for damages, following Buckingham, supra, for an injury „inflicted by the protrusion of roots from a noxious tree or plant.” [208 NJSuper Page 36] Other reported decisions have sustained or recognized a cause of action for damages for injury caused by tree roots from a tree or trees planted by the owner of adjoining property or his predecessor, Forbus v. Knight, 24 Wash. 2d 297, 163 P. Metz, 49 Misc. 563, 205 Pac. 737, 202 Pac. Abbinett v. 80, 703 P. [20] In addition to Holmberg, supra, other recent decisions have barred recovery of damages for tree root injury by applying the defense of avoidable consequences, Hasapopoulos v. Grobe, 128 Misc. The court in Hasapopoulos viewed as decisive the evidence that the tree involved was „healthy and undecayed” and that plaintiff had failed to resort to self help. In Loggia plaintiff built a patio within one foot of an already standing tree on defendant side of the property line. 89, 99 (1959), draws a distinction between nuisances resulting from artificial and natural conditions of land. The former are actionable, Restatement, Torts 2d, ? 839 at 161 (1979); the latter are not, Id. ? 840 at 166. Illustration 4 to ? 840 provides, paralleling the facts in Stevens v. Moon, supra: [22] A purchases and takes possession of land on which have been planted a number of eucalyptus trees near the boundary line of B land. The roots of [208 NJSuper Page 37] the eucalyptus trees grow into B land, with the result that walnut trees growing thereon are stunted and otherwise damaged. Although A knows of this, he doese not cut down the eucalyptus trees. A is subject to the rule stated in ? 839, since the eucalyptus trees are not a natural condition. [23] By analogy to Ackerman v. Ellis, supra, the trial court on the appeal before us properly held that injury to an adjoining property caused by the roots of a planted tree was actionable as a nuisance, irrespective of the absence of proof of prior notice of the nuisance to plaintiffs. Damages were recoverable, in the absence of any pleading or proof that the damages were avoidable or that defendants had „come to the nuisance,” see Weber v. Super. Super. den. 236 (1963); Restatement, Torts 2d ? 840D at 175 (1979). On the undisputed proofs, the defense of avoidable consequences could not be sustained. When defendants dug down for foundation footings for their masonry wall in 1973, roots from plaintiffs maple tree planted three years before were nowhere about. Nothing in the record suggests that the maple tree roots heaved up or were in any way evident in the vicinity of the masonry wall between 1973 and 1984, when the wall cracked, or that defendants should have foreseen the direction and extent of the tree roots growth. [24] We affirm judgment on the counterclaim in favor of defendants. It would be trespassing to go onto another property.
