INTRODUCTION TO TRESPASS AND TRESPASS DAMAGES

A landowner is typically entitled to the exclusive possession and enjoyment of his/her land. But vigilance is required to protect those rights, especially where there are unauthorized encroachments by neighboring land owners, which can constitute a trespass.

When Trees Are Unlawfully Cut or Removed From Property: Monetary Damages Under M.G.L. c. 242, § 7

A landowner who discovers that one or more trees have been unlawfully cut or cleared from his property is entitled to recover monetary damages as compensation for the loss. And, in many instances, the landowner may be entitled to treble (triple) damages resulting from the unauthorized cutting.
