Mayor Cuts Down Man’s 30-Year-Old Tree, He Revenges Him In The Best Possible Way (UPDATE)

What would you do if the council ordered the death of one of your favorite trees, and then made you pay for it?

That’s what happened to one man in Redondo Beach, California, but although he lost the battle, he most certainly won the war. Because unknown to the council, the man, who’s an arborist, had a perfect way to avenge the death of his 30-year-old pepper tree. What did he do? Scroll down to find out. His story was recently shared online, and it’s since been read over 150k times.

UPDATE: Since posting this article, the author of the original post has apparently revealed that they made the whole thing up. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Please take into fact that the giant sequoia is native and uses a lot of symbiosis to live so its help the environment and not killing native trees or plants at all and is very good for native birds GO THINK IT THROUGH and nature was here before us deal with it we need to respect it although I'm not with this mans vengeful ideas his heart was in the right place your brain is not in the right place either. Also it doesn't matter what it looks like this poor man had this tree as family imagine if someone walked up to your child and took a chain saw to him this tree was his child and they made him kill it!!!

Hilariously, he posted this in a sub-reddit for Cannabis growth, use and discussion. Poor guy just loves trees. And the stoners at r/trees clearly enjoyed his story with 4 gold :D
