Abstract: Last week saw the umpteenth desecration of a carob tree of a venerable age, this time in San Ġwann, on the edge of the scheduled valley of Wied Għomor. Despicable though this was, some behaviour still manages to stand out in terms of sheer gall. For instance, when faced by livid residents at Triq il-Baltiku, the burly operators of the heavy machinery doing short work of the carob tree wheeled out the customary clich “No need to be concerned as the tree will be transplanted”. Seeing the pitiful state to which the carob tree had been reduced, residents were not buying this.
