Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after two trees were cut down in Tinkers Bridge, Milton Keynes.
Between 9pm on Wednesday and 9am on Thursday (31/5), two field maple trees were cut down with a handsaw in the community garden in Aldenham, Tinkers Bridge.
PC Andrew Hipkin, investigating the incident, said: “The trees were both about seven metres high and were left at the scene after they were cut down.
“This mindless criminal damage has upset the residents, who are rightly proud of their estate and the community garden.
“The trees were planted in an area of the gardens near to the main road through the estate and I am hopeful someone might have seen something. I would urge anyone with any information to contact me.”
Anyone with any information about the incident should contact PC Hipkin via the 24-hour Police Enquiry Centre on 101.
