    This is the 2nd major tree poisoning story I've now witnessed in my life. What's with these people?

    I think it's worse. It's easy to place a new buffalo in front of Folsom, but harder to replace 130 year old oak trees. At least teh owner of the property will get to make thousands of dollars selling framed slices of the trees...

    Yes, Treaty Oak comes to mind. Can we push the fullest extent of felony vandalism charges for this nonsense?

    Not only is it messed up, this is sad. 130-year old trees aren't something that can be replaced.

    The scary thing is that half of the posters think it was either a great idea or funny.

    Not to be insensitive, but yeah, they can. It just takes 130 years.

    I think he meant easily replaced. Cannot replicate 130 years growth in less that 130 years.

    Pardon me if I'm not crying over these trees that have been dying for years. Claim "classless redneck UA fans" all you want, but I will not shed a tear over it. From the fanbase that gloats about urinating on Coach Bryant's grave and rolled the same trees when news of his passing reached Auburn. It's a God thing, I guess.

    There are rednecks/idiots in both fanbases, so I am in no way taking the high ground, just wonder what would possess someone to decide to secretly poison trees. Pretty whacked out IMO.

    I'm sure those trees could have died, gracefully, on their own, chucky. No need a-helpin' 'em.

    What a selfish and classless act. Hope they catch the bastard.

    You mean we can grow a nice, fat, fully-developed chicken in 3 months but we can't accelerate the growth of a tree? What ARE they doing at CSU?

    This guy is an idiot. How bad would it suck to rot away in jail for years and years, all for poisoning some trees.

    First off, you spelled "idot" wrong. Work on that. Secondly, rep.

    You should play the audio from that radio call-in show where the poison-er called in and blatantly told what he'd done....

    When the host said something to the effect of, "Don't you think that's illegal?" his priceless response was "Do you think I care?"

    And his final comment -- "Roll Damn Tide"

    I have to say in all the years I've hated the very earth that the state of Nebraska occupies, it never crossed my mind to do something like this. Of course, there aren't any trees in Nebraska to poison, so that would not have been an option in the first place, but you get the idea.

    The Feds have taken root and are creating a canopy to capture the culprit!
