The Olympic Peninsula grows trees so valuable and coveted that poachers are risking prison time and their lives to steal them. Trees like the Western Big Leaf Maple bring in millions as their wood is used to create the highest end guitars and other musical instruments. The dwindling supply has triggered a black market, sending a wave of poachers deep into the last great forest of America. But Jefferson County Deputy Adam Newman and his fellow deputies are determined to put a stop to the forest destruction and the criminal activity fueling it.

40 K for some Big Leaf Maples. I was surprised.
