Idaho Falls Trees Poisoned


Law enforcement in Idaho Falls is looking for the person or persons responsible for poisoning trees in the eastern Idaho city.

Idaho Falls forester Delbert Lloyd told the Idaho Post Register that at least a half-dozen green ash trees were sprayed with glyphosate, a chemical found in Roundup. Leaves on the trees failed to grow back last spring. The loss is estimated at $18,000.

City officials said they had received complaints about the trees, which had partially blocked a sign for a local hotel. Police have yet to identify any suspects.
