Redwood poaching may be spreading to Oregon

Gold Beach, Ore. -- Redwood poaching may be spreading to Oregon.

Oregon Wild took this photo in the Rogue Siskiyou National Forest near Gold Beach and is urging the forest service to take action.

Just last month, a northern California man was arrested  on suspicion of poaching trees in the Redwood National Forest.

Police say he cut the burls out of numerous redwoods and sold them to eventually be turned into souvenirs and furniture.
