I understand well that people will steal the most random of shit. Road signs, statues, toilet paper rolls in fast food places, whatever. But this one was a new one on meA tree? Seriously?
Here’s a hint for my fellow Arlingtonians: If you are affluent enough to afford a house in Arlington that’s big enough to have a yard worth landscaping, then you are affluent to buy your own damn trees to fill that yard with. Don’t want to pay $3K for a tree? Grow it yourself. Just because it’s in a park that your tax dollars pay for doesn’t mean it’s YOUR tree for the taking. My tax dollars pay for that park too, so don’t be a jackass.
