Barbara, what about your other neighbours? Surely, there's others besides your family that object to what's being done. Are you alone in being targeted by the owner's newphew? Are you surrounded on all sides by this rape or just on one side?
Money speaks louder than anything else nowadays. I've had a friend forced to move as a new apartment block was build in front of her old place. They piled dirt almost two stories high on 'their' property but right in front of her place, blocking her view of anything. Just past her fence was this 20 foot high pile of dirt.
If you can enlist your neighbours, or perhaps some forgotten laws forbidding such development - otherwise I don't know what to offer. Any environmental group that's willing to take on such a project to protect you & the land? I'm appalled at how large, healthy trees get cut down, only to plant small ornamental trees & then have it said that more trees have been planted than used to grow - blah, blah, blah. Twisted truths that are worse than lies.
Don't give up though. Contact any environmental groups that you can think of by e-mail & ask for legal, or any other, advice they can give about your situation.
