Evidence Showed Association Removed Member’s Trees
Facts: The owner of property in a planned community sued the homeowners association under Oregon’s timber trespass statute, after several trees were cut down and removed from his land without his permission. The association claimed that an adjacent golf club with an easement on the owner’s land had removed the trees. A trial court determined that the association was responsible, it ruled in favor of the owner, and it tripled the damages award that the association had to pay, which was allowed for violations of the statute.
