Do you have a survey showing the trees were on your land?
If the neighbor has in fact entered your property to cut down trees he is trespassing. Further, under Arizona law he is liable for the damage to your trees. http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/arizona-laws-neighbor-property-disputes-65218.html. Do you buy any chance have a survey or title insurance policy from when you purchased the property. The law enforcement agent is not giving you accurate information with regard to this civil matter.
Sorry for the typo " do you by any chance have a survey"?
