Reeder farmer David Schoeder said his family's pile of petrified wood was taken from his land while Adams County Highway Shop workers installed culverts nearby in the fall. The Schoeders claim the rocks, shown here in this undated photo after they were returned, were damaged and not put back in their original spot.

Farmer, Adams Co. officials seek solution for damaged property


Adams County officials and a Reeder farmer have found themselves between a rock and a hard place regarding petrified wood taken from the farmer's family farm.

"We've spent 30 years picking every piece of petrified wood and putting it in a pile that was clearly defined as petrified wood," David Schoeder said. "Rather than going and finding rocks, they just came in and scooped up all our beautiful petrified wood and destroyed it, and they are claiming no responsibility."
