Instead of the state paying to get rid of these trees (assuming that is what is implied in the article, nothing actually states WHO removed the trees), these trees could have been offered for free to whoever wanted the firewood. I'm sure there would have been many takers for often sought-after apple wood.

"..........to protect nearby commercial orchards from pests and diseases."
Your answer is right there! If there were removed to protect nearby orcahrds, they were not sold or offered for firewood to others to prevent spreading pests & diseases to other orchards etc!

My guess is that someone close to the action over there got some nice, free apple firewood. Perhaps they are even selling it. You are right. The article is very vague on who did what.
