Rock piles for sale - forwarded by Norman Muller

"...the news from Chenango County is not good. Stone merchants have been goggling up anything made of stone: fences, foundations, and yes, stone piles.
It is all perfectly legal. The landowner has the right to sell stones from his property. The incentive is great for the merchant. He pays the owner $3 to $10 a palette and sells for up to $300 a palette. Our stones are shipped to Texas, North Carolina, New Jersey, and downstate New York.
It is urgent to protect any important sites. Even sites on state land have had their stones stolen. ..."

See "The Stone Wall Initiative" . Under "Preservation" read what it says on the back of this truck [Click here]
