There was once a tree growing here.

An update about the continued vandalism of trees beside the picnic kiosks at the western side of Tempe Reserve –  the last time I wrote about the tree vandalism was 2nd October 2012 –

Within the last two weeks the tree that was doing the best has disappeared, leaving only 2 out of the original 7 trees.  Council removed, but so far has not replaced the protective tree cage that people took away from around one of the trees.

Even though the trees were small, the birds used them. Many birds also sit on the tree cages.

If I were a gambler I’d be taking bets at how long before the last two trees are destroyed & whether trees will ever be replanted in this location again.
