Paul Vogel of Fargo is looking for the public's help to find the culprit who cut down a huge Colorado blue spruce at his family farmstead last week.
He's offering a $300 reward for solving vandalism to the 20 foot high tree someone took for a Christmas tree.
For Vogel, the tree has special meaning.
"It's a beautiful tree,' Vogel said. "I was shocked the tree was gone."
Vogel said all that's left is a stump and some low branches.
"Thirty years ago, my dad and I planted it," Vogel said. "My heart just sunk."
