I am so angry, disappointed and disgusted all at the same time!!! We planted 2 ornamental Pea Shrub Trees at the end of our walkway about 8 years ago. They thrived in the perfect sun/shade combination and rewarded us with lovely yellow blossoms each spring.
At some point on Sunday, someone attacked one of them with a knife (which is another worry) and hacked it down! They then proceeded to cart it down the street and stick it in a neighbour's yard.
Our neighbour kindly brought it back to us, thinking the wind had done the damage. (Until she realized the wind blows in the opposite direction!!)
Looking at the stump (it pains me to even write that word) you can see the blade marks from a knife. What kind of a person walks around with a knife of such size to do this damage? Is it the same knife that slashed 4 tires on a car in the back lane a week earlier?? This isn't Chicago!!! It is Gananoque: population 5200
What goes thru a person's mind? How does one make sense of such an idiotic act?? My worry is what is next??
If anyone knows anything about the senseless destruction of this healthy and beautiful little tree, please get in touch with us.
If you know of anyone walking the streets of Gananoque with a knife, get in touch with the Police before it is more than just a tree that is attacked!!
