Yeah, so anyone seen this blad bloy?Have you seen the cottonwood killer? Kelowna RCMP seeks witnesses after deliberate poisoning of mature tree
Mac Logan is getting tired of seeing mature trees being intentionally poisoned in Kelowna, B.C., and is now asking for witnesses to come forward after a third such incident in the city in 12 months.
Logan, infrastructure manager for the City of Kelowna, says an RCMP investigation has been launched after a mature cottonwood in a small city park was deliberately vandalized.
The 18-metre-tall tree, located at 1055 Sunset Dr., had more than two dozen bore holes in it that Logan said were filled with herbicide.
"We don't believe it's going to survive," Logan told CBC.
City arborists expect the tree, which is the largest in the park and provides ample shade in summer months, will be completely dead within weeks.
