Q. I keep having people from the electric, gas company etc. trample trees, shrubs and removing no/ trespass signs, can I do
A: You need to take action at the time you know it happens. Log the date, write down what they did and photograph the damage. Then send a demand letter to the company that is destroying your property or stealing your sign and tell them to cease and desist and that if they continue you will file a lawsuit against them in Magistrate Court. You can also just write the utiltity companies directly with your proof and submit a claim to them for the damage they have done. Obviously keep copies of everything you send. I assume the utilities have easements. I don't know why a construction company is coming on your property. If its because a neighbor is having something built then you need to send a letter to the neighbor and the construction company, putting them on notice of what is going on and that you demand that it cease or you will file a lawsuit in Magistrate Court for your damages. You can do that yourself.
