He knew exactly what he was doing. Tebuthiuron is lethal to trees. And he put it out there in a dose much higher than that required for activity. It is also very water soluble, so any chance to save the trees is probably long gone as it's been out there for some time now. They have applied liquid activated charcoal as a last hope. I could see AU replacing the trees. Arborists are getting pretty good at being able to move fairly large trees.

What an idiot. He deserves to spend some time in jail. If for nothing else but having a very low IQ.
