Why pick all the apples?

Could someone please tell me why so many apples were picked on Sunday, September 30, from South Molton woodlands?

None were left for ordinary folk with children to enjoy the pleasures of picking apples to make apple tart, etc.

My daughter went on Sunday afternoon and there were none left.

I cannot believe that someone or some persons could be selfish enough and greedy enough to strip the apple trees nearly bare.

Maybe there was a good enough reason, maybe picking them to sell for charity or another genuine reason.

But surely not enough good reason to be that selfish and greedy to take them all?
