That takes a lot of nuts.

I had a relative call and pay someone to take down 2 big walnut trees in his yard because "they just make a mess".   The guy must have laughed all the way to the bank.

I've never been on a walnut ranch

Illegal logging, not just for the Amazon anymore.

When I was a kid my father got a company to take down some medium size trees by the driveway. They also went to the other side of the yard, a few hundred feet away, and took the big tree there. So these articles reinforce my previous beliefs about tree cutters.

They should know it's not oakay to cut other people's trees

The maples did it. Did you think they would stop with the oaks?

They're going to steal my best buddy, aren't they? Next thing you know, my suspendies are gone, and those adorable Mounties, too.

This is why you should teach your trees how not to be seen.

They stole a walnut tree? That's just nuts.

Full marks for tag use subby.

This isn't exactly something new. As in the first time I heard of it was probably 40 to 50 years ago.
As someone who has worked with wood, walnut sucks.
It affects my breathing.
Oak. Now there's a beautiful wood. In appearance and to work with.

Now they'll never have to shell out money for walnuts again. Probably a bunch of crackers !

That part of the state grows beautiful, high quality walnut trees. My great grandmother owned a small walnut grove in the area that she sustainably harvested and it financed her 20 years of widowhood after gr-grandpa died. I have a table made from the wood from those trees.

I was looking around for wood-splitter plans, and ended up on a forum of people who make their own wood-stoves. Some new member was showing off all the trees they cut down, delimbed, and bucked into 18' sections. *Everyone* in the forum groaned -- he had cut down a stand of sugar maples. The youngest tree looked to be about 70 years old, some were possible 100+. A decent amount of money in syrup and many thousands of dollars in lumber all ended up in a firepit.

^correction: 18 inch sections.
