15'=4.572 meters

Ok now that I know the distance I agree with you that its a bit much. But still, they asked, and from what Im reading they were not given a distance as to how far over the property line they were allowed to clear, therfore you cant lay the blame entirely on them.

We talked to them and he said that he was "trying to make it square to make it look better." We didn't want him taking our land for his own uses and he opened it up yada yada yada... Well we ended up building a fence yesterday on our property line and we are going to plant bamboo on our side for privacy. We were going to fence in the whole property eventually...we just weren't planning on spending the $ now. The neighbors were a little miffed at our fence...but I didn't pay for my property so that THEY could have a view basically...

And we didn't make them pay for anything or what not...we just told them we were building a fence for the safety of our animals and did our own thing...we figured that was for the best. Just cool and calm...

Oh and we ARE in the country...we have 8 acres...

Thought a pic might explain what happened...the green blob is what the guy cleared...and the black line is our property line...which is our newly built fence.

everyone has their own definition of country...

I think you did the right thing by not asking them to pay (even though I'm sure you wanted to, or atleast get some reimbursement)

The best thing to do now is just remain civil and slowly fence your yard in.

Hopefully that'll be the last time they do anything like that.
