Mysterious dart

There's an unusual dart in the Ithaca Journal today:

DART: From Scott Campbell of Dryden. To whoever cut down the fir tree in my front yard last week. The tree was planted by a longtime family friend in memory of my father. If you had asked honestly, and needed it that badly, we would have let you have it. No matter how altruistic your aims may be, your means of accomplishing them were unethical and deeply disheartening.

I'm not sure what the story behind that one must be.

At our house, it was a rough year on the trees between our property and next door, and they lost a fine spruce. We need to sort out where the property line goes through, and then I'd like to clean up the weed trees (lots of sumac and box elder, both of which keep falling over) in between. Hopefully no DARTs in the paper will result.
