Back to your regularly scheduled programming

So that's what me looking for joy for a week looks like. It was fun. I'll do it more often.

But, um.

This weekend, while I was out of town, my neighbors dug up some trees they assumed I would not want where they were.

They then took them away, as they were preparing to haul some brush themselves.

I had vague notions of transplanting said trees elsewhere.

I have never, ever, met these neighbors. Still.

What, if anything, would you do with this situation?

(For context, my history with these same neighbors here and here and here.)

Were the trees on your property? 'Cause that's a definite no-no.
And I can think of a great spot to re-plant them. . .

They were not only on my property, Joe. They were very close to my house, and not on the side close to their house.

When these neighbors initially made the offer to do it (through another neighbor), I was not interested, but thought it was a nice gesture; I think she mentioned the "nice" business, but was noncommittal on whether I was interested. When they came to the house and just took 'em, still never having introduced themselves to me, it's hard to perceive it that way.

Ooh, they're in trouble. I'm going to e-mail you an interesting document that I found on NH's timber removal laws. There's also some phone #'s in there that may help you out.
And check out Page 25, which covers "Trespass, Civil Penalty" when somebody removes trees from your property without your permission.
