A family of maple syrup farmers in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania cannot stop their trees being cut down to make way for a new fracking pipeline project owned by billion dollar oil companies, a federal judge ruled Friday. The Holleran family opposes the seizure of their maple grove to make way for the new 124-mile-long Constitution Pipeline. The group faced contempt of court charges for obstructing tree cutting on their property.
