I was going to say fence your yard, but that would be pricey! How about just removing access to the tree house when you are not there? Like by removing the ladder or something? Also, maybe ask a neighbor to keep an eye out for your stuff when you aren't home?

It's public then. Not a lot you can do as it's not your property. With swings, you either take the rope with you or leave it far enough out of reach that no one else can get at it or be bothered trying. Some people think rope swings are dangerous and take them down in case you should accidentally get hung. Other people just don't like scruffy-looking rope swings and take them down. The same applies to treehouses, but if you made one that was really good, too good to take down, you might sand a chance. It depends upon who it trashing these things really. L:

If it's on your property you've got some local / Federal laws, but you'd need to be sure of what they are. You might think of security cameras, or just shooting at people - can you check with local government (council) as to what you are/are not allowed to do to protect your property? If people are messing with your stuff that's a misdemeanor at least, but you need to stay legal on this. L
