Podrían renacer brotes del árbol de “Robin Hood” talado por vandalismo
September 29, 2023 - El árbol Sycamore Gap del RU, punto de referencia famoso mundialmente junto al Muro de Adriano, talado en un acto de vandalismo, tiene un tocón sano y puede salvarse, según la fundación National Trust.
The UK’s “Sycamore Gap” or “Robin Hood Tree”, a famous landmark growing in a natural dip on Hadrian’s Wall, that was felled in an act of vandalism, has a healthy stump and may not die.
According to National Trust general manager Andrew Poad, the sycamore stump is healthy and may well regrow a coppice – a term used to describe when new shoots grow from the base of a trunk.
If successful, the shoots would need nurturing and protecting for several years to stop animals, such as deer, from eating them.
The tree, which featured in the 1991 movie blockbuster “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves”, starring Kevin Coster (hence its alternative name), was sawn down overnight on September 28, 2023, in what is believed to be a wanton act of vandalism.
The iconic tree had become part of the identity of northern England, and a world famous landmark, drawing artists, writers and photographers from far and wide.
As of September 29, the police are questioning a 16-year old boy in connection with the felling.
