OBceans – Beware of the Plant Vandal

A reader up on the 4500 block of Orchard sent us these photos of plant vandalism at his and a neighbor’s houses.

Senseless. Stupid. Ignorant. What can you say?

What.
The.
Hell.
What kind of db goes around doing something like that?
Maybe you can stuff the cut off cactus pieces into the after-market Harley pipes of the guy up on Orchard?
Sorry for your losses.

Were all of these protruding into the sidewalk? We have a large bird of paradise that has been cut by stranger too – only the part that was in the sidewalk area. Not nearly as damaging as what was done to the cacti though!

Twice in the past few years someone has cut the hell out of the beaver tail cactus in my front yard along the sidewalk on Narragansett. It’s not protruding into the right of way, it was simply vandalized. Yes, I made a police report.

Honest to Pete, what kind of satisfaction can someone get out of doing this?! Here we are, working hard to save OB’s trees while someone else is whackin’ cactus down… can only hope they got a palm-full of needles! Such a shame-if they knew how long it took for that cactus to get that size maybe they would feel remorse :-(

Respect the urban biome that’s making our oxygen, its not a lot to ask!
