Two years ago the local electric company installed a new line across my property to feed a new house and other lost across the road from me. An existing line crossed my property when I bought it, but this new line goes in a totally differant direction. Since then, another house has been built across the road from me and the electric company installed a new line that junps the road (not on my property) and goes across the back of the lots across the road from me to serve the new house. The utility company asked for my permission to install the first new line across my property so they could get power to the lots, and being a good neighbor, I gave my permission, but not in writing. Now the utility company wants to cut some of my trees by the first line that goes across the road. I dont want my trees to be cut and have not been compinsated for loss of land use under the first line. Do I have any rights to make them remove the first new line from my property and get power from the line that has been installed across the back of the lots?
