England’s famous tree Sycamore Cape was deliberately cut down
A tree named Sycamore Cape in the United Kingdom was cut down in an act of vandalism in the early hours of Friday (28), police said.
Agents say they arrested a 16-year-old boy after the tree fell.
Sycamore Cape is located on Hadrian’s Wall, which marked the border of the Roman Empire on the island of Britain since ancient Rome.
The tree was also called the “Robin Hood tree” because of a scene in the 1991 film “Robin Hood”.
This tree is estimated to be hundreds of years old. In 2016, it was voted “English Tree of the Year”.
The National Trust, one of those responsible for the site, said the news was shocking and saddening.
Police said it was a nationally known site and the tree felling had shocked the local and national community with sadness and anger.
