HILLSBORO, OR (KPTV) -

Neighbors of a Hillsboro natural area say trees are being tagged with spray paint and they want it to stop. 

Walking through Jackson School Woods Natural Area, it's quickly apparent that someone has spray-painted quite a few trees. One neighbor estimates close to 100 trees have been tagged with graffiti. 

Police aren’t sure who is doing, but officers guess it could be kids or teens living in the area. 

Police tell us they were called to the area in April on a report of graffiti on several trees. Since then much of it had faded or been painted over. 

According to neighbors, it appears someone recently came back and tagged more trees. 

People walking the trail Monday told FOX 12 they’ve noticed an increase in vandalism to the trees and said it is pretty sad someone is out ruining their park. 

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact Hillsboro police
