    I have a friend who is currently in a "similar" situation. His property and the neighbors is separated by an unmaintained county road. The old county road gives his neighbor access to the back of his property. The neighbor's father doesn't like the old grown up unmaintained road so he decides to make a new road on my buddy's side. Hard to imagine something like this could happen but it did. Despite repeated confrontations the neighbor and particularly his father who was doing all the work, took out a gate( repeatedly), cut the roadway in ( yes, LOTS of dirt work), cut over 100 trees ( and took the wood) and started hauling in a gravel base.The Sheriff wouldn't get involved or the states attorney. "It's a civil issue". The neighbors father would not stop until after the second court appearance where the judge made it clear if he continued, he would be jailed. This has been going on for about 2 years. I know my buddy's initial legal retainer was $10K and he spent several thousand on a survey and it is nowhere close to being settled.

    It doesn't sound like your situation is as bad but I hope you can get a handle on it quickly and amicably. That sounds so easy but the reality of this kind of situation is sometimes crazy neighbors can do some crazy things with seeming impunity....it boggles my mind!

    I would dig a ditch and see what happens.

    Hitch up your brush hog, and do your best imitation of "Crop Circles" in his grapes? Blame it on Russian collusion.

    I admire you guys and your "turn the other cheek" advice. I'm afraid my response in such situation would be much less "friendly-like". Sometimes it's all in how you explain it to the guy. He's getting away with it because you're trying to be sweet. That is your mistake. He's calling your bluff, so call his. He doesn't "misunderstand". He's ignoring you. We'd have a Come To Jesus Meeting over it, and he'd either stop on his own, or I would cause him to stop. Sounds like he has much more to "lose" on his property than you have on yours. Explain it to him that way.

    I've not had to deal with the same problem, but I have dealt with problem neighbors and similar mindsets.

    I wish you luck OP.

    I try not to hit anymore beehives with a stick than I have to. I already have enough to worry about without retaliation. Is he really hurting anything?

    Yes, the ditch idea is a good start. My kubota L3800 and 66" Box Blade cuts a real nice one sided ditch. His large sprayer tank might not like the drop off getting onto and off my property. The throwing of T-posts and signs tossed like frisbees does show strong aggression so I think talking is over.

    Until his survey is done and the actual line location established , any action could come back and bite him in the tail. Once that is done a few strategically set concrete waste blocks as someone suggested will probably be the simplest solution.

    Or in the case of my aunts neighbor removing her fence and clearing the fencerow had it surveyed, the court threw out the survey and my aunt lost her 3 feet of property that was the fencerow.
