What to Know: TPPF attorneys helped two Michigan brothers win a victory in court, securing their private property rights. They had been fined by their township for clearing trees on their own land.

The TPPF Take: The Wayne County Circuit Court held that the township’s tree ordinance is an unconstitutional taking and seizure of private property.

“The court rightly recognized that it is the Percys, not the government, that own the trees on their property,” said TPPF’s Robert Henneke. “That is a significant victory for not only the Percys but for property owners everywhere.”
