A council is offering a £1,000 reward to catch those responsible for attacking a tree at a Windsor park.
A large area of bark on the whitebeam tree, near the skate park in Vansittart recreation ground, has been cut off.
Council experts said the tree, which would cost £8,000 to replace, had no hope of survival and would have to be removed.
Councillor Dee Quick said: "It defies belief that anyone could just hack a tree almost literally to death."
Anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of the vandal or vandals responsible has been asked to contact Thames Valley Police.
