ULSTER, N.Y. (AP) -- Boy Scouts in upstate New York are out 60 Christmas trees.

A scout official says someone stole the trees and smashed a wooden display stand in a store parking lot.

The scouts were going to sell the trees as a fundraiser. The loss will cost the Ulster-area scouting council about $3,000.

But a local paper (Kingston Daily Freeman) reports volunteers have gotten the site up and running again. The Boy Scouts sold about 20 trees the first day.
