Five trees were found with 2 inch-deep cuts around them on Nov. 21 between Montage Resort Drive and the Pacific Coast Highway.

Sergeant Tim Kleiser said the cuts were at the base of the trunks on the trees and investigators believe the damage occurred sometime between 5:30 p.m. Nov. 20 and Nov. 21.

He added that it would take more than a month to determine if the trees can recover from the damage.

The trees are believed to be 40 to 45 years old and cost about $75,000 to $100,000.

Another tree was found vandalized on Nov. 26 along the 30800 block of PCH with similar damage.

The incidents are under investigation.
