The Seattle Parks Department and Seattle Police are on the hunt for a tree murderer after maintenance crews discovered seven poisoned trees near the Burke Gilman Trail in North Seattle
This week, Parks crews found that someone had drilled a series of holes into the trunks of seven 70-foot silver poplars and Douglas firs along the Burke Gilman near NE 77th St in the Sand Point neighborhood, and pumped the trees full of herbicide.
The damage is estimated between $40,000 to $60,000 and Seattle Parks spokeswoman Dewey Potter says the all seven trees will have to be removed.
Seattle Parks has asked SPD to investigate. If someone is caught, they could be charged with malicious mischief or for a “timber trespass,” the illegal cutting or damaging of trees.
The trees will have their revenge.
