Hannah's attorney, Paul Bassis, says Hannah was arrested Thursday evening.
Bassis says Hannah and landowner Eleanor Fairchild were standing in front of heavy equipment brought onto the woman's property in Winnsboro.
Bassis says the two women are being taken to the Wood County Jail.
Hannah has starred in dozens of movies, including "Kill Bill" and "Splash." She also was arrested in August 2011 while protesting the Keystone XL pipeline in Washington.
Several acres of Fairchild's farm have been condemned by TransCanada. She says she opposes TransCanada's plan to transport heavy tar-sands crude from Canada to the Gulf Coast.
