The “Robin Hood” tree apparently has hope: new shoots can grow from the tree’s stump. An incident of illegal scything caused shockwaves in the UK.
An illegally felled sycamore maple tree in north-east England known as the Robin Hood tree can be saved, according to the head of the National Trust. The tree is “very healthy” so new shoots from its stump are called coppices, National Trust chief Andrew Bode said.
Bott told the BBC that this would be “one of the most likely scenarios” if new shoots sprouted from the stump and could support their growth. Poad: “Then save the tree.”
On Thursday morning, the teenagers found the sawed-off tree. The fig tree, about 60km west of Newcastle in north-east England, appears to have been deliberately felled on the night of the storm.
The cut resembled a chainsaw. The tree fell on Hadrian’s tail as he ran near it, and only the stump still stands. The stumps are also marked with white paint.
Considered one of the most photographed trees in Great Britain: the “Robin Hood” tree in North East England – before it was cut down.
The 16-year-old was released on bail
A 16-year-old was arrested – later released on bail. Northumbria Police registered a criminal case against him. Investigators said Thursday they were at the beginning of their work on the “senseless crime” and were looking in all directions.
Located on the edge of the Roman Hadrian’s Wall, the tree was the backdrop for a central scene in the 1991 film “Robin Hood,” starring Kevin Costner. It is considered one of the most photographed trees in Britain.
After it became known that the “sycamore tree” had been cut down, many people expressed their displeasure on online networks and shared memories related to it. One user wrote on Facebook that he proposed to his wife through a tree.
Local MP Mary Foy said the felling of the tree was a “heartbreaking act of mindless vandalism of a much-loved and iconic North East landmark” that would upset “many people across the country – even the world”.
