No longer country living

We live in the country where there are no laws protecting homeowners from light tresspass. Our neighbors installed a Duke power pole in their backyard and it shines into our bedroom and illuminates nearly our entire yard from dusk till dawn.

We have asked them to have a light shield installed and we have planted some red maples that will eventually shield the light (7-10 years). However, they have yet to remedy the issue and when we followed up we’re told it took two months to get the light installed and it’ll take that to fix it. It’s been nearly three months since we had the conversation.

What suggestions does anyone have in the meantime to eliminate the light? We have blinds and the light still comes through, we cannot install curtains due to allergy issues.
