Basically vandals are topping the centuries old olive groves in the area and selling the tops on eBay and elsewhere to people who want to decorate their homes. The article questions if EU policies are helping promulgate these activities.

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
