Police officers look at the tree at Sycamore Gap, next to Hadrian's Wall, in Northumberland, England, Thursday on Thursday, Sept. 28, 2023. One of the UK's most photographed trees was "deliberately" felled in an apparent act of vandalism, authorities said. The 300-year-old tree was made famous when it appeared in Kevin Costner's 1991 film <em>Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves</em>.
