Brainless Tourists Slaughter 5,000-Year-Old Sacred Scottish Tree

The Fortingall Yew sits in the corner of the churchyard and is surrounded by a wall and railings, which are there to protect it. (Maigheach-gheal / CC BY-SA 2.0)

This makes my blood boil, so many stupid ignorant people these days just do not stop to think of the harm they do. It is all service to self and to hell with the damage they do. It makes me sick to see how stupid and selfish some humans are.

I have said for a couple of years now humanity is devolving, here is more proof. It does not have to be this way. This is a choice, and selfishness at the heart of the matter. Just an other day on planet earth as it races to the reset button.

Stand well back to avoid being dragged along in the stampede folks. I suspect a friend of mine in the Royal Botanical Garden Edinburgh will be involved in the supervision of this tree's care, a hard working and extremely dedicated woman.  Let's hope the tree can be saved.

By the way Australia also has some very old trees, I am not sure of the exact ages or locations though. I have seen on such tree here in the National Australian Botanical garden in Canberra which has a big cage around it too. It was brought down to Canberra from Sydney many years ago for protection.  This is it 😁

I found this doing a quick Google search for the oldest tree in Australia. The oldest tree in Canberra
