Tree stolen out of Ballard front yard

Last month, we posted a story about several statues that were stolen from Ballard residents’ front yards, and now someone has stolen a tree. “My husband walked out of the house this morning around 9:30 a.m. and found one of our trees in our front yard in the 7500 block of 19th in the Loyal Heights area dug up, dragged several feet, put in the back of a vehicle and stolen,” writes My Ballard reader Jennifer.

She sent us this photo of the tree from several years ago. “The branches are much longer and the truck is now approximately 4 inches in diameter,” she explains. “If anyone saw anything or is having some yard work done and suddenly has a new weeping evergreen that you think might belong to us, please have them contact me.” Her email address is posted here.

I live nearby in Magnolia and just had a very similar tree stolen from our front yard this past week. A weeping blue atlas cedar we'd had for about 10 years. Is there some kind of black market for these things? I am dumbfounded, really.
