A tree, really! He should have taken a trip on the highway, lots of trees on side of the road.

I wonder if his case will be handled by the Criminal Investigations BRANCH?

This is a theft, no matter what the item. How would you feel if you took the time and money to purchase and set a tree on your front lawn to add some beauty to your property and someone dug it up overnight? Margie posted about trees being taken from a cemetery. Really, is that funny?

Doesn't matter. Theft is theft. He should be lucky he wasn't charged with trespassing.

They should have hemlocked up so he can pine away for those who would spruce up to come visit him.

How many weirdos are living in this province? For him 10 years in Eurka Nunavut, no tree up there.

lmao even though all those comments were hilarious to read i think the story is gone a little overboard. Yes it was wrong to take a tree that wasn't his but come on people there is so much REAL crime happening in this city and the idiots are gettin slapped on the wrist for it and this man...who is not very smart either...gets a charge of theft. Something wrong with that picture.

Marlene would you rather he didn't get charged at all?

He stole. Got caught. Getting punished.... What's wrong with that!? The only thing wrong is that it probably doesn't happen as often as it should...

Johnny AppleSeed would not be happy about this matter.I remember I once read ""God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand tempests and floods. But he cannot save them from fools." - John Muir .Go figure the mind set of this idiot.I hope the tely follows up and publishes the court date so we can know who it is and laugh him into the forest.

I wonder what "spruced" up this idea, people like this are the "root" of all evil.. he should just "leaf" the trees where they are so everyone can enjoy them instead of "planting" his "seeds" of mischief all over the place...

he's lucky he never got tree years in prison..lol

When I was visiting a local cemetery last Fall, I noticed a medium size tree was no longer by my parents' grave site, and mentioned it to one of the care takers. He said that a couple of nights previously a number of trees were dug up and stolen from the cemetery. Isn't that unbelievable?
