    Default Can You Sue Your Neighbor for Cutting Trees and Other Activity Across a Property Line

    My question involves real estate located in the State of: Pa
    After a couple years of a disputed property line my neighbor finally got his property line surveyed we now know he has built a structure a shooting range /target 10-15 yards over line which also involved him cutting trees down to make it. Plus trees that now have bullets in them. Second part of this he has 300 some tires that are now on my property he placed behind his target what would he be looking at if I take him to civil court for damages. Surveying was done by people he hired and hasnít disputed it

    Unless he has actually killed the trees he is shooting be looking at the cost to remove anything he has put on your property and to bring it back to its previous state. If the trees he cut down where yours their value as well.

    I have no idea what you'd have in damages. What you'd likely want to do is first get the guy to remove the things that he's built/placed on your land at his expense. I suggest you talk to him (in a cordial manner) and see if you can't get him to remove that stuff. You would also want to ask him to replace the trees that were cut down. If he's not willing to repair/replace what he's done, then you sue for injunction and for damages. Your damages would be whatever it would cost you to fix what he's done. So get some estimates as to what that will cost you.

    To help with the matter talking to him is not a option. He has made that very clear
