Forest officials are trying to figure out who damaged hundreds of red pine trees in Marathon County.
The vandalism happened at the south end of Nine Mile Forest, off a snowmobile trail. Tom Lovlien, Marathon County forest administrator, says about 600 trees have been damaged. He says it may have started several years ago.
Lovlien says the most recent vandalism happened in early January.
"What we think is, is someone has a dislike for red pine trees, and they're trying to think out the trees around--the oak and the aspen and the spruce that were coming in," said Lovlien. He says this vandalism has cost Marathon County about $32,000.
If you have any information about the damaged trees, call the Marathon County Sheriff's Department.
