I have a vacant lot that I maintain (mow, spray weeds, rake leaves, remove litter, etc.) and inspect about once a week. Today the canopy looked different. It looks like in the past week a neighbor has embarked on a back yard expansion project and has felled at least 150 trunk inches of trees on my property complete with machinery tracks. What is the appropriate way to halt the neighbor’s overreach? What are my responsibilities to avoid any sort of adverse possession claims down the road? In some senses I’m greatly annoyed at the loss of some 50-75 year oaks but in other senses the loss of some pines and gum trees probably saved me time and money anyway. The machinery tracks are what has my hackles up because this isn’t a situation where somebody lacked a moment of clarity with a chainsaw and accidentally cleared some 4” trees 3 feet on the wrong side of a property line. This is a situation where someone retained services to bring in heavy equipment and was more than 30’ inside the lines in a neighborhood where the lots run 0.10 to 1.2 acres in size. Flagged survey pins are quite visible so there is no doubt as to the location of the property line.
