Trees vandalized on Spanish Banks Beach

The top of eight trees has been cut off illegally on Spanish Banks Beach in Vancouver in recent days and the police have begun a search to find those responsible.

-They cut from 60 cm to 2 m. These trees are now damaged and will never develop fully, -says Howard Norman, the city’s director of parks. Especially since they bring shade in the summer and protect the lawns from the sand.

-We will go to the end of this case so that the person or persons responsible are punished by law,- says Norman. These are not personal trees. They belong to the city.

The Parks Commission suspects that the culprit is a neighborhood resident who wants a clear view.
