My question is does anyone know who is "The District" and what monies do they use to pay for this illegal cutting.
What was the final disposition of this issue??? Hmmmmmmmm

What? They have been identified by law enforcement? Their identities are public knowledge?

Glad they were finally identified. Did anyone collect the $1k reward? Will those responsible pay restitution?

Good question, and why did they do it, and are they going to reimburse the district the $30,000?

It is likely someone from a lumberjack school on a field trip who did it.

What did it say in the Sun-- Who was responsible??

Since it was apparantly a crime, the info is (should be) available for public release.

This act was probably not done in a single day. Chain saws make a terrible loud noise. There had to be vehicles parked near the cutting sight. My conclusion is ; Several residents heard the chain saws, saw the workers, and saw the work vehicles and you can take it to the bank that there are several neighbors who played a part in having the trees cut.
