Dozens Of Trees Cut Down Along Trail in St. George
GEORGE, Utah–Someone cut down dozens of trees along a hiking trail in St. George and now a search is underway for whoever is responsible.
The vandal or vandals chopped down a total of 30 Mesquite trees on the Virgin River North Trail.
City officials said it happened sometime between Thursday and Wednesday morning.
“The mesquite trees have some really big thorns on them,” said city spokesman Shane Moore. “We can only speculate that someone must have a strong dislike of them because of all the trees along this trail. It’s the only one being attacked. It’s really been singled out.”
The city said it will cost $30,000 to replace the trees with trees of a similar size.
St. George police are asking anyone with information about the tree vandalism to give them a call.
