This is the first time I've ever actually paid attention to one of these threads, but it's a slow time at work so I'll give it a shot.

1) I don't think Fir trees are even indigenous to Florida. (Leans toward Germany)
2) I live in Florida, and we don't refer to too many places here by "region" (Leans toward Germany)
3) Considering Germany uses the metric system "8000 Sq Feet" seems like a hint it might be in America, but it could only mean that the article was written for American readers. (Slightly leans towards Florida)

I'm 90% sure it's Germany.

Thieves steal entire forest

From correspondents in Oberstein, Germany

November 14, 2006 11:06pm
Article from: Agence France-Presse

THIEVES in southern Germany made off with an entire forest, police said.

The theft was discovered by the 56-year-old owner when he went to check on the trees in the Hunsrueck region south of Frankfurt.

The man was shocked to find they had disappeared over an area of 2500 square metres - about half the size of a football field.

Police said the thieves appeared to be professionals who used different cutting devices to chop down the fir trees and drive away with them.


GERMANY is correct... Another one coming soon...

It was the fir trees that did it for me. Like someone already said (I think it was josebach), fir trees are not indigenous to Florida.

I debated a change there too but to be honest I am not a horticulturalist so I was not sure whether they were or not...

Should have said metres instead of feet. Germany uses the metric system.

DUH! and that would have pretty much defeated the purpose - like searching for the article did...
