 * One of the world's most famous trees, the Sycamore Gap Tree growing near Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland National Park, was recently cut down by a vandal in the middle of the night. It was believed to be about three hundred years old. British police are investigating who might have done it and the National Trust is investigating whether the stump is healthy enough to salvage in order to regrow a tree.
