English “Tree of the Year” Felled by Moron


    The tree is sometimes called the “Robin Hood tree” because it was featured prominently in the Kevin Costner-led film “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,” released in 1991. 

    The tree stood proudly for hundreds of years, set alone in a dramatic dip in the Northumberland, England, landscape right by Hadrian’s Wall. Perhaps England’s most-photographed tree, the Sycamore Gap tree drew visitors from afar. It was even voted the English Tree of the Year in 2016.

    Yesterday, a mindless idiot sawed it down.

    So who did it?

    The BBC announced that a 16-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with the felling of one of the UK’s most celebrated trees.
