Queen’s Gift to Guiseley People, Stolen

Site of stolen tree

We are very sad to have to report that the little oak sapling from the Royal Sandringham Estate,  given to us by the Woodland Trust to plant for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee,  has been stolen.  Someone,  has lifted off the surrounding turf and dug out the little tree.

Either side of the sapling was two other self seeded oaks,  anyone who wanted an oak was very welcome to one of these,  or one of the many other self seeded oaks around the park.   But,  it was this special little tree,  planted by a group of local people in March 2012 for our children to enjoy in their latter years,  that has been taken.   Indeed,  some of those children helped with the planting.

It would be nice if whoever took the tree, had a twang of remorse, and replanted it where it was put originally.
