Take a look at your state and local laws regarding trespass.
If he/she has in fact violated a statute, then you can likely
file a report and seek damages in a small claims court.
Prior to doing this I would try to resolve any possible
confusion or at a minimum get an explanation from your
neighbor. While you were away he may have hired a company that
went onto your property or cut tress your neighbor did not
Get as much information and then decide how you will proceed.
Almost all states and cities have the ordinances and statutes
on their State house or senate websites... by the time you do
all the leg work maybe the ivy will grow back.
