From 17 Jun 2020 to 17 Jun 2021

One and All This photograph shows a 15 – 20 year old Horse Chestnut Tree. If you look closely, you can see that an individual, or individuals unknown, have systematically stripped ALL of the bark from this tree to a height of approximately 1.5 m. This tree will now start to slowly die. Maybe I am missing something, but I simply do not understand why on earth this act of criminal damage was carried out.
