PUBLIC LANDS -- Apparently we have an axe-swinging landscape terrorist on the loose who's getting some sort of warped pleasure from vandalizing live trees along the popular public trails on the South Hill bluff.
Another ponderosa pine was crudely hacked down in the last few days, says trails user Chris Lang, who snapped the photo above today near the first tree that was reported being hacked down below 37th and High Drive on Feb. 10.
But this tree-whacker apparently is no friend of the bluff.
These trees cannot be seen by homes along High Drive and are not in thick forested areas that are a still in need of planned and controlled thinning.
Keep an eye out for this jerk.
