Gaol the little b*stard who has been charged with cutting it down. About a million years ago during my time in the military I walked past that tree doing something we called Hadrian's Hike
Good afternoon Paul, I guess there's more to come out about this incident that hasn't yet been releasedDoes anyone else think this is strange?
A 16 year old boy carries a chainsaw at least 550m from the nearest road (and presumably he's not a driver) during the night to cut the tree down?
I think it was on land owned by the National Trust and was within the Northumbria National Park, that really should have been enough protection. I can’t even guess at what motivated a sixteen year old to destroy it.Glad you blokes aren’t beating around the bush.
My wife asks why that tree wasnt heritage listed? She remembers it well from her walk along the wall.
I’d be surprised at a 16 year old chaining a big tree like that in this day and age. Not unless the chain came in the form of an iPhone App.
What a tragedy
