Maple poachers hit Burnaby Mountain

The Canadian Press has this story about poachers stealing big-leaf maple trees from Burnaby Mountain and selling them to guitar makers.
I like the lede:

"When an old-growth maple tree falls in the majestic woods of British Columbia's Burnaby Mountain, does it make a sound?
Yes . . . but only once it's been transformed into a guitar."
