My philosophy is that, if it is not a serious health or safety issue on private property, ignore it. What my landscape looks like is only my business.
On the other hand, if the semi is on a public road, there might be a law or local ordinance that requires vehicles to be moved after a certain interval of time. Where I live, the limit is 72 hours. If the vehicle is not moved within that time, it is subject to being towed away with the owner then being required to pay for the towing and subsequent storage. Towing is done, however, only when local law enforcement orders it. A reluctant local government can be made to act if you file a formal complaint.
