Chainsaws in Grove Wood

This morning two men were seen cutting up some of the large logs along the footpath near Broomhill Bridge using a chainsaw. Who they were is not certain but we suspect they were stealing the wood to burn or sell as neither of them appeared to be the owner or any of his previous workmen. They took the cut logs away quickly and didn't return during the day. We are concerned about the use of chainsaws in Grove Wood for obvious reasons; will live trees be targeted next? There is a tree preservation order (TPO) on the entire woodland so any damage to living trees or saplings is a criminal offence. Please keep an eye out for the people doing this and report it to the Police or to SMAG if you see them again.
