Another Tree Located on the 1300 block of Perry Place Cut Down for no Apparent Reason

“Dear PoP,

I came home from work to find our own little tree cut down. I found it laying on its side next to the little stump, the sharp angle of the cuts clearly visible on both trunk and stump. So far I haven’t had any neighbor tell me s/he saw who did it, but then everyone’s in out of the heat right now.

I am thoroughly irritated that this has happened. The tree was clearly not a weed. It was beautifully flowering up until the moment it was cut down, and the tree lawn around it was cared for (not beautiful, but cared for). I can only be grateful that I did not plant it in honor of anyone, or I’d be thoroughly ready to wring some necks. As it is, I’m just feeling deflated and disheartened. What the hell is wrong with people?!”

This is the strangest epidemic. I know there are worse things in the world but for folks to just cut down trees. Ridiculous.
