Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to help if I can. Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct any necessary research, and type a response. Thank you.
Generally speaking, the law states that an owner of property can do with it what he'd like, so long as he does not disturb his neighbor's quiet enjoyment of their property. In this case, it's possible that his logging could be construed as a nuisance. If so, then you could sue the neighbor for creating the nuisance and force him to stop. So that is one possibility.
It may also be possible to get out of the sale if you can demonstrate that the seller misrepresented his intent. This may be a little more difficult to prove, however, if nothing at all was stated about the intent to log when you purchased the property. Ordinarily, there would be no requirement to disclose that information. Still, you may have recourse depending on the specific facts.
My suggestion to you is to retain a local real estate attorney to review these details with you in person. That attorney can review all documentation and investigate the details as to the possible nuisance. From there, he can send a demand letter to the neighbors or file lawsuit as necessary.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
