I purchased a home in 2003 and it was never disclosed that the property had a conflict over an easement from 1984 . since 2004 we have been sued by our own title company on behalf of timberland owners to our south to widen 11 foot easement to 40 feet. since that time we have been harassed by them. we won a unanimous jury verdict for malice and oppression against them 07. now they are back and have cut 2 of our redwoods down without permission.
You won't find an attorney to donate thousands of dollars to you over a property dispute. Attorney'w who do pro bono work do that work for the most part through legal aid organizations providing services to the destitute, elderly, and underserved populations. Unless you matter contains some sweeping public policy issue or matter of great legal injustice, there would be no compelling reason for an attorney to provide you services free of charge.

Redwoods are protected by law. Contact the local authorities or the department of forestry.
Additionally, there can be severe financial penalties for cutting down trees that are on someone's property.
Instead of looking for a pro bono attorney, look for a lawyer that would consider taking your tree case on a contingency. You will have better luck.
