Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THREE trees have dis­ap­peared from Lions Park in Monto and Monto Po­lice are on the look­out for the thieves.

The plants, of­fi­cially known as Xan­th­or­rhoea, were lo­cated near the driver re­viver sta­tion in pots.

Monto Po­lice Se­nior Con­sta­ble Ron Mien­t­jes said the crime was be­lieved to have hap­pened be­tween 8am on Thurs­day, May 26 and 4pm on Sun­day, May 29.

The trees are pro­tected species and a li­cence is re­quired to keep them.

Th­ese plants can cost hun­dreds of dol­lars each, on­line re­search shows.
