Whitney Cummings Calls Cops on Neighbor For Tree Hatchet

EXCLUSIVE

Whitney Cummings is livid at a neighbor who she claims went all Paul Bunyan in her backyard, and now cops are investigating. 

We're told Whitney walked in her backyard this week and was horrified to see a tree massacre, courtesy of her neighbor's gardener.

Seems the neighbor was frustrated that Whitney's wall of bark was blocking his view, and she says he ordered the landscaper to do a hatchet job on her property ... cutting the trees down to stumps.

Whitney called the cops, who came out and took a felony vandalism report ... she claims the damages total around $36k.  

Sources tells us the neighbor offered to pay Whitney something, but it's unclear how much.

We spoke with the neighbor, who had no comment. We also reached out to Whitney, but so far no word back.
