"tree tops"

It's a special kind of asshole that goes around lopping off the tops of trees.

Can't they hit them with a separate charge for each stolen tree?  Or is it based off of the total value of all product stolen?

miss diminutive: Getting the sap out was a production that involved trying mayonnaise, egg whites, vinegar, shampoo and olive oil in various permutations and combinations. I had changed into my bathing suit and was standing in the shower shivering and moaning while my friends basically tried these concoctions. Finally we resorted to a combination of rubbing alcohol and dish soap and had success. I still smelled like an air freshener for about a week afterwards.

Zippo lighter fluid--the liquid in the flip-top bottle, not the pressurized can of LP.  It's "Goo Gone" with a different label and 1/5 the price. It'll take the stick out of anything.  It will also etch some plastics, so be careful, but works great on skin. Just wash with soap and water afterwards.

JesusJuice: They'll grow back.

No, they really won't. when you "top" many kinds of trees it will never grow any taller than where it was cut. it will grow wider (assuming it survives) but never taller.
