There is a tree in the alley behind my house, who is responsible for the maintenance of that tree?

When 2 private properties are separated by an alley, each adjacent property owner is responsible for maintaining the vegetation on their half of the alley.

Example: An alley separates 2 properties and the alley is 20 feet wide. Each property owner would need to maintain 10 feet into the alley.
