Grand Traverse Co. Farmers Find $50,000 Worth Of Damaged Cherry Trees
The Kroupa farm was devastated to find 400 cherry trees destroyed this week. Their Grand Traverse County farm is on the corner of M-72 West and Gray Road in Traverse City. It looks like someone sawed the trees in half and then knocked them over, but they have no idea who did it or why. Police say it looks like it happened within the last week or so. Most of the damaged trees were about five years old and just getting ready to bear fruit. The Kroupas are putting up a $10,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest. If you know anything, contact the Grand Traverse County Sheriff Department. Jennifer Profitt and Photojournalist Justin DePrekel spent the day on the farm, they have the story.
