MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont man has pleaded guilty to charges that he cut down two large trees in a state forest.

The Rutland Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2g2qUUv) 31-year-old Matthew Wyman pleaded guilty last week to cutting down the sugar maple and birch trees in Proctor Piper State Forest in Cavendish, and selling the logs.

He was ordered to pay nearly $670 in restitution and a $500 criminal fine. Wyman also was ordered to complete 29 to 30 days on a state work crew.

His brother, 33-year-old Joey Wyman, of Cavendish, also faces charges in the case. A trial is scheduled for next month.
