Woman Arrested for Burning Down 3,500-Year-Old Tree

Offbeat  (tags: environment, humans, bizarre, tree )

- 1091 days ago -
This is the Senator, the largest pond cypress in the U.S. and, at 3,500 years old, the fifth-oldest individual tree in the world. Or anyway, this was the Senator, because on Jan. 16, the Florida tree burned from the inside out.

A tree that had lived for millenia, destroyed in a few hours by a recreational drug user. Not one of humanity's finer moments.

Some people getting high with illicit drug do stupid things but possible regrets it in the long run.

a 26 year old women said outrageous things like ôlit a fire so they could see better" of 3,500 years old pond cypress in the U.S. She and her friends commit crime against mother nature by burning belove "Carbon recycle factory" tree for all walk of life.

Most Sadist thing she release from jail in 6 month because overcrowding. She repeated behavior again.

Sara Barnes is quite possibly the stupidest woman alive. Too bad she didn't kill herself, doing all of mankind a favor, and winning a Darwin Award.
