We have found out today that someone has cut down a Plum tree in the Community Garden without discussion or permission. It was a mature Plum tree and had quite a lot of green plums on it. In a few weeks the plums would have been ripe and giving pleasure to anyone who took the time to pick some.
Was it diseased or dangerous? No
Was it blocking the route through the Community Garden? No,
This attack on a healthy and productive tree appears to have been a wanton act of vandalism, carried out by someone with a power saw. Who would want to do such a thing?
Can you help us to track down those responsible? Were you in the Community Garden in the last fe days, and did you see the cut down tree, or was it intact when you passed through? It was a karge tree and it completely blocked the paths through the Community Garden until the Council Tree Gang removed it for us around 1.00 pm today (Thursday).
And of course if you have any information on who may be responsible please report it to the police on 101 quoting log number PE01062072JBBLH.
