A freshly cut spruce tree was found Feb. 7 at the beach, which is at the end of Monashka Bay Road, according to Kodiak Island Borough Code Enforcement Officer Neil Horn.
“KIB views such acts seriously and if caught a $1,000 fine per tree can be imposed,” he said in an email. “Not only is this vandalism, but it ruins the countryside and beaches for other nature lovers.”
A group of scouts from Troop 626 will be selling the wood from the tree as a fundraiser for the troop, he said.
