Low life has struck !..
We have a wild area behind our fence,which doesn’t belong to us,but we were given access to it by the owners..The builders planted trees ,as it was to be a designated wildlife area..on a steep slope,with a stream at the bottom..so unsuitable for building…As you will see,it has matured nicely over the years,and a pleasure to look at…and we maintain some of it,to stop it encroaching through our fence,and planted a barrier of evergreen shrubs,dug up from our own garden..
To say I am annoyed,is a very mild statement..I am absolutely livid,as while we and two of our other neighbours were away at the weekend ,someone with no love of nature,or intelligence,took it upon them to cut down one of a pair of Silver Birch trees…and just dumped it down by the stream …Why? ..
I have my own suspicions about this moron,but no proof,sadly…but I will try to find out..as it isn’t the first time this has happened…and I know who did the same to an Alder tree that was there too..also done while we were away,a few years ago !
Would you believe that an engineer from a satellite company told another neighbour,that it was blocking his signal ???…instead of erecting his dish much higher up,this was his advice! ..All of us have the same TV system,and no one else has a problem…
I shall be doing a bit of detective work,and casually asking around…Miss Marple hat now on !
sorry to be so pessimistic this morning..but needed to express my feelings…I could quite willingly tie the person to the remaining stump and leave ‘him’ there ..forever ! ..
This is the sorry sight…
the browning remains of a lovely tree,by the stream…
I just hope the other one will be safe from the Butcher !
