Re: “In Rockridge, a Rarefied Crime: Flower Poaching

This just happened to us in our central Berkeley yard. Our little variegated dogwood was blooming - in a huge pink cloud -for the first time in more than 13 years.

I came out early in the morning to find all it's branches cut off, the tree mutilated. To replace my tree would cost $800, which I cannot afford.The tree will live, but it's shape is ruined. It may never bloom again. The whole crown is gone.

Yes, in the grand scheme it's not a horrible crime, but it really hurt. I planted that tree when my boys were little and now they are grown men.

Florists and wholesalers need to refuse to purchase these poached branches. If there is no market, it will stop.
