IL Timber Trespass Issue

I have 10 acres of land down in Southen Illinois that I purchased to be my retirement home. A logging company came in log the 100 acres behind my property. I just found out from friend down south that logging company took out about 3 acres of my timber without my permission. Of the 10 3 acres is grass leaving me with about 4 acres. I am really hurt by the logging companies action what do I do?
