Did Dennis Rainey, follower of Jesus Christ and co-founder of FamilyLife, pay his disciples to cut down 100 trees from government owned land to improve his view of Lake Maumelle?

According to a report filed with the Pulaski County Sheriff's office on May 14th, Dennis Rainey hired six men to clear trees on property he did not own. The trees were on land owned by Central Arkansas Water.
Rainey's home is located at 20325 Spillway Road.
The land were the trees were cut sits between his property and the Lake Maumelle, a water reservoir for the City of Little Rock.
KARK has this video posted on YouTube about the criminal act.
Raven Lawson, Watershed Protection Manager with Central Arkansas Water, stated that “We don’t take things like this lightly. The tops of the trees look like something out of the Lorax,” said Raven Lawson with Central Arkansas Water.
The Lorax is a children's book written by Dr. Seuss and published in 1971. It chronicles the plight of the environment and the Lorax, who "speaks for the trees" and confronts the Once-ler, who causes environmental destruction.
Lawson says she has received around 50 emails and dozens of phone calls from hikers upset about damage.
She says after further evaluation, they believe 100 trees were either cut down illegally or had the tops of them shaved off because the homeowner wanted to view Lake Maumelle which was blocked by the trees.
“The view to the lake could definitely be increased– the view to Pinnacle mountain could be increased… there’s definitely a lot of nature that could produce million dollar views out here,” said Lawson.
They believe most of the trees will die, and the ones that did not will take years to grow back.
Apparently Rainey is an author and has been involved in some religious organizations. One thing for certain is that he is not an environmentalist.
The self-entitled prick Dennis Rainey is like the Once-ler in the Dr. Seuss book and the Pharisee in this verse:
We hope they throw the book at him.
