The problem with the lumber poachers isn’t so much that they are taking the burls, although steeling another man’s property is reprehensible. The problem here in the NW is that they are killing large trees on public and private land. Some of the maples are huge, and they will kill the entire tree for a small burl. Some of the trees they killed in maple valley then became hazards to drivers on the road that runs through the valley.
Might not sound like an issue to some, but if it was your tree, and it was adding value to your property, and now you incur the clean up cost to boot. I think it would be an issue for you.
Drug abuse fills our prisons hospitals and cost more and more every year.
