The deeded right of way on my property has not been used in at least 40 years. Trees have grown up on it. If the owner of the land the right of way was granted to decides to use it does he have to compensate me for the value of the trees he clears?
Under Maine law, an easement holder has the right and responsibility to maintain the right-of-way. In this situation, they can only cut as many trees as necessary in order to the use of the right-of-way. The wood would be yours if you wanted to keep it. The easement holder would not be liable for cutting the trees, or need to compensate you.
