Always terrible when this happens! And I hope that posting these stolen trees here helps to get them back to there owners! But posting how much they are worth will only work counter productive, because it could give lurkers of the bad kind the wrong idea!

Maybe so. But it seems the thief knew well what they are worth, knew exactly where to get them, and was very selective about what they took. This wasn't the work of any 'lurker'.

Some lurkers are very knowledgeable! To think they are not, is a other mistake! Wink But seriously, Bonsai is a outdoor hobby and therefor is very pron to theft by knowledgeable or opportunistic thieves a like. The knowledgeable one, knows the prices or saleability of what he steals. The opportunistic one might have come across those prices, while browsing on the web and thinks about that, while he passes our gardens! I only posted my original post to warn people that in my opinion it is wrong "to bind the cat on to the bacon", like we say in Holland! Smile But all that those not help much for the guy's who's trees were stolen! It is sad wen our peaceful hobby is pulled into the bad world! I hope they get them back, thats all!

On this, Hans, we are in total agreement.
