In the past, they have had to spray pine trees in Minneapolis with skunk musk to keep the low-lifes from cutting them down for Christmas trees.

Of course it's illegle. That dosen't stop crimianls from doing things. It's not like somebody allowed him in there to cut down the tree. It was some selfish jerk who wanted something nobody else had. Hope they're happy, and get caught

If the guy ever gets caught he'll get tried for murder in tree hugging Washington.

I live here, and man, I'm sorry to admit this is true for the most part.

My community was devastated by the saving of the spotted owl and the cut back in logging.

maybe we should put a "chip" in trees, not dogs.
chip everything you worry about, kids, cars, phones, tv's. then you can wipe your tush with the comfort of feeling protected from organized stupidity.
