BY TRAYLOR, J. :

2004-C -1297 BARRY HORNSBY AND LARRY HORNSBY v. BAYOU JACK LOGGING, ET AL. Parish of Acadia)

Based upon the foregoing, we reverse the court of appeal's decision affirming the award of restoration costs in the amount of $224,000 for the Hornsbys and in the amount of $154,000 for the Guidrys.

R.S. 3:4278.1 Thus, the Hornsbys are awarded treble damages under La. R.S. 3:4278.1 in the amount of $31,523.67, and the Guidrys are awarded $36,064.20.

REVERSED AND RENDERED.
