Forget tagging this is proper vandalism

Have your say

Sheffield council have been replacing old overgrown trees on estates with smaller, more suitable stock.

However the vandals of Longley seem to have taken this to heart and are currently removing the new trees.

What a pointless exercise for the council if the locals just destroy them.

It makes you sick, forget the odd bit of tagging this is real vandalism.

There’s at least three that I’ve noticed in the area but no doubt if I walked around the whole estate there would be more.

The tree from the picture is on Herries Place and there’s a couple on Raisen Hall Road – which the council are aware of and said they were going to replant last winter but haven’t.

It makes the area look an eyesore and encourages other acts of vandalism.
