How is tree pruning handled in alleys/easements?

When two properties are separated by an alley/easement with no street grading, each owner next to the alley is responsible for the trees in half of the alley. For example, an alley separates two properties and the alley is 20 feet wide. Each property owner would need to care for trees that are 10 feet in to the alley.
