Trees Uprooted, Police Offering Reward

Posted:

Easton, Md.- A project to improve the community was vandalized, and police want answers.

On October 22, students from St. Michaels and Easton High Schools as well as the Chesapeake Christian Academy planted 1,400 trees in Easton's RTC park.  But on Tuesday morning, parks director Lorraine Gould found 108 of those trees uprooted and tossed aside.

"It was something that kind of broke my heart.  I thought that putting the trees in was great.  And then to go in and see someone destroy what you've already done in less than a week, it was heartbreaking." said Gould.

Easton Police say they are surprised by the crime.  They are offering a $1000 reward to anyone who can give them information leading to an arrest.

Vicki Nutter, who works in Easton, has planted trees in the past. She says she has an idea of what should happen to the person arrested.

"They should be made to go around and plant some trees themselves." said Nutter.

All 108 trees were replanted.  Gould says only time will tell if the trees survive.
