Did you sign anything to permit them to run this line through your yard? If you did, then removal of the line would be governed by the document you signed. Also, there is a chance a prior owner of your property granted this type of permission. If you know nothing was ever signed by you, or a prior owner, then your neighbor is trespassing by running this line through your yard. If this is the case, then generally you can give them a deadline to remove the line (perhaps 24-48 hours) and warn them if they fail to do so, then you will file a lawsuit against them for trespass. If you never granted permission for this trespass, then a claim against the neighbor should be successful. You are also likely within your rights to simply remove the line, but be careful here as if you cause any damage to equipment you could be liable.
