Sorry to hear of the view you now have.
Unfortunately, if the trees and hedge where on his land and were not protected, then the owner is allowed to remove them if they so wish.
You would not be able to make a claim against them for any devalue to your property, as they have no right to your property and would not be legally responsible to you for your property.
Of course, there is nothing to stop you planting your own hedge or trees at the edge of your boundary to block out the view and to protect the value of your property.
It is possible that may be the case, but not guaranteed.
You can certainly enquire with your local planning office at the council. They would be able to confirm this one way or the other.
