That just blows my mind how it could happen and people not get caught or shot. Someone had to use the wood locally.

I think somebody stopped by and the guy said he bought the trees.  Nothing else was asked.  

Most guys in the business had an idea who it was and those logs didn't end up anywhere local.  He only cut the veneer butts off and left the rest of the tree.

After the tree is gone, you will never be able to connect the cutter to theft without any proof.

There are also guys who drive around state lands with their tri-axle.  Nice trees next to the road usually get snipped pretty quick.  The state knows who it is, they just can't catch him.
Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

I used to do some work for a company who would buy as little as a single log off a pickup. This practice apparently attracted jerks who stole trees. I've seen both state foresters and state police walking around their logpiles with a slice off a stump. The logs were numbered so, if rings matched, the company ID'd the supplier.

FL,

Attach one of these to your driveway and catch the Lil buggers on camera.

It is a RF camera and can be hooked to PC or VCR to record the video.

Jason, that looks like a sweet deal. Only problem is, my shop is 300+ feet from the house, and the cam only transmits 100 feet. Any ideas how I could extend the range without resorting to extraordinary means?  I suppose I could mount a vcr in the shop and bury 300+ feet of coax to a tv in the house, but that falls under the category of the above mentioned "extraordinary means."  :-/

There are a few other companies that sell longer range transmitters but they cost more $$$$.

I'll dig around the net some more to see what I can find.

northern tool Note:Please read the Forestry Forum's postion on this company has one in he latest catalog for $150. Not as cheap as X10 but it does claim a 300' range, and is 2.4 GHz and color. Just remember that most of these wireless have their range rated on a  line of site basis. They will go through walls and stuff, but it will cut a little bit out of the range. If your shop is 300' out, you may be a little bit short on range.

Ya gotta point dere, Den. :D :D   I think I'll just leave ol' Goofy and the gang out there. They been doing a good job so far, and nobody would steal them ugly things. ;D

I think I'll pass on that idea. I'm bad ta fergit things, p'tickly in the early morning. Sometimes I fergit ta git up.

I'm getting a "new" computer, the first one I've actually owned since the Vic-20. ::) :D :D  There's even a chance I'll finally be able to post pics. If it works out, I'll show a shot of "Goofy and the gang" and you'll see why I don't really need the camera. ;D

$150 is cheap when you are looking at $1500 cameras.
Good point about the camera getting stolen, but atleast you would have a close up of the thief. ;)
I bet "the Gang" is more fun then the camera anyways. ;D

Last week, News of the Weird reported that some clown in Wisconsin was arrested after he stole an "electronic gadget" from a front yard. It turned out to be the base station for one of those ankle monitors used to keep track of people in trouble with the law.  ;D

That's just one of the many reasons I don't steal stuff. Murphy is my shadow. ???  If I stole something, and went to sell it, I guaranDanGtee the buyer would be the guy I stole it from, and would have his name in a hidden place.  :-/

  Jason, guess what ??? ??? I got the whole schmear from X-10. It's JUNK !!!!!!!!!!
 One camera got so hot, it nearly set the wall socket it was plugged into, on fire. The base station, that sat on the TV, leaked some kinda goop all over the place.  The VCR converter thingy NEVER DID work right. It would show the images on a small TV, but, never would record.
 Got the new replacements in. Just gotta figger how to thief-proof 'em before puttin them on.
 If ya wanna see how easy it is to steal whole tail lights, go to any GM pickup, and open the tail gate and you will find 2 screws that hold the assembly in place.  
 For now, I'm gonna Epoxy some blocks of wood between the metal rods that lock down the hard cover and the inside of the hard cover. When they stole the lights, the rods were bent up, in a curve, where they forced the top up. HAD to be 2 of 'em. I tried to do that myself, right after I bought the truck.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.
