Wood poaching: Men charged with slashing old-growth redwood

Wood poaching: Men charged with slashing old-growth redwood | Aspiring Woodworker | Scoop.it
A suspected redwood tree slasher and burl bandit was arrested after park officials tracked the wood poacher and an accomplice to a Del Norte County shop where they allegedly peddled the purloined lumber. Danny Garcia, 43, of Orick (Humboldt County) was charged this week with felony grand theft, vandalism and receiving stolen property after the redwood burls he allegedly sold matched the large cuts found in a mutilated old-growth tree in Redwood National and State Parks, in Humboldt County. The money is a strong lure in rural areas where lumber mills have recently closed, jobs are scarce and drug addiction is a growing problem. The remote areas of the Redwood national and state parks have been a particular draw for poachers riding ATVs and carrying chain saws. Park officials soon received an anonymous tip that the burls had been sold to a tourist shop in Del Norte County, where investigators obtained Garcia's and Morrow's names on the receipts for the sale.
