Ok. So if he left the branches it is fly tipping and if they are your trees yes it is criminal damage and trespass.

You could report this to the police who could prosecute for tresspsss, criminal damage and fly tipping. But they may try and say it's a civil matter.

Do not get fobbed off, it's a criminal offence.

Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
