Christmas In Almost July

by Ryan C. McKeen

It’s almost July, it really is. Hard to believe that the 4th of July is next Friday. It’s the part of June that is known here at www.aconnecticutlawblog.com as “almost July.”

Connecticut has statutes on everything or nearly everything.

To some degree, statutes reflect the values of society or at the very least what our legislature values.

I’m here to report that here in Connecticut we value Christmas trees.

The measure of damages for anyone who cuts (without permission), destroys, or carries away any tree intended for sale or use as a Christmas tree is 5 times the reasonable value of the tree. Conn. Gen. Stat. Sec. 52-560.
