I made a brief trip into the city (Wellington) today and was saddened to see the wilful damage of at least two young trees. Both had been all but completely snapped off near the base of the trunk, with one having been split vertically down the middle as well.
Both were located in areas sheltered from our sometimes strong winds.
I don’t understand why it is that these young trees are a target for destruction when they do so much to enhance our beautiful city.
But then, I don’t understand many of the stupid and needlessly violent acts that people carry out.
