Trees are the personal property of the person's whose land they are situated upon. The law is very strict and very clear on the destruction of trees. You would file a lawsuit for the damages to caused to each tree. The first step would be to write a demand letter to the company HQ explaining that this has occurred without your permission. You can also have a local attorney draft the letter as attorney letterhead seems to get the most attention. You would send the letter certified mail return receipt requested. You would give the company a set number of days to rectify the situation or let them know that you will be filing a lawsuit against them.
