Does anyone remember my 2 Acers being stolen from my front garden last year? Well, I invested in a CCTV, a bargain at £79 from Amazon, and after many months of peace, I risked buying another red dissected Acer. After 6 months, it was stolen. While viewing the SD card, the tree was plainly visible at 02:55hrs. At 02:55 & 10 seconds, it was gone! That leads me to think it was possibly a neighbour. My reason is simple, who had enough time to watch my device long enough to work out that there is a 10 second delay on the camera?! Certainly not someone who was just ‘walking through!’
I was absolutely incensed, but whoever bought it will be incensed too……………..‘cos it won’t survive being yanked out of the ground at this time of year.
I now have a new Acer at the front, but not in the border. I have put it in a pot in the middle of the garden. Now the 10 second delay just won’t be enough!! Haha!!

Sorry to hear about your Acers. You just can't believe the nerve of some people can you?
I hope your solution works for you.

B******s! How about wiring the Acer to the mains? (I'm not very nice am I?). Good luck this time. :-)

Sorry to hear that AM, I wonder if you could stake the next one into the ground somehow, maybe bury a stake and have a hidden piece of wire attached to some root so they cant walk off with it.
