A lawyer letter from a local lawyer can be effective in several ways. It can avoid costly litigation and help bring about a settlement. It also helps organize the claim and if it goes to court shows the judge you tried in good faith to resolve it!By being prepared and pressing your claim, the other side should feel the pressure and consider the risk of losing and legal fees. That realization can help bring about a settlement!Next legal action for declaratory judgment and an injunction.martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

A neighbor has encroached on a portion of my land, chopping a few tress down and has moved stakes on a survey that I have paid for.

You can report to the police, and consider a lawyer cease and desist letter, demanding compensation for the trees.
