More than 800 Christmas trees have been stolen from Borders farms this year.
400 were taken from Shielsknowe Forestry, and a further 420 were taken from a neighbouring farm in Jedburgh.
Just two years ago, 400 trees were stolen from Shielsknowe.
The farm is run by a Dutch company, who grow and distribute Christmas trees across Europe.
Their Scotland manager, Christian Ladefoged says that while one or two trees are cut down and taken each year, it is very unusual for this many to be stolen.
