Vandalism: Decorated trees cut
Three incense cedar trees were resting on the edge of a pond where they had been presumedly thrown Tuesday night or Wednesday early morning, the water still. The trunks showed a clean cut from a handsaw halfway through before the tree had been snapped off from what would become a stump.
Robert Deitz has come to a conclusion of how the trees were felled, but has no concrete idea of why. About 20 incense cedars were cut down across a 1500-foot stretch next to Lotus Road on his property, trees he has spent the last 23 years growing.
