    Tree at canterbury blown over

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/kent/4160973.stm

    it's a sad day for english cricket and particularly fans of kent county cricket club as the historic lime tree was blown over on friday night. It will probably be replaced but i doubt it will be the same

    That tree made a picturesque sign for the ground. As a fielder, one would have loved to field from under it. Sad that it isn't there anymore.

    Rich's coverage of the story
    Seems a bit of a loss, really - a real shame.

    I hope this tree gets into the Wisden's births and deaths list. If a cat can, surely a tree can too

    Scientifically speaking, a cat is classified as a living, breathing mammal; a tree is simply a living, photosynthesising plant.
    Then again, it's not unusual for cricket to think it's above science, is it?

    Scientifically speaking, both are living. And also scientifically speaking, in Births and Deaths of cricketers' a cat and W.G.'s mom should have no place

    Apparently it would have died around 2007 anyway - perhaps it wanted to go out with a bang, or crash.

    Only 3 people ever cleared it though, Learie Constantine, Jim Smith and Carl Hooper/

    i guess im the only one who thinks 'good riddance?'

    What sort of professional game has a tree in on the playing field? it was amaturish and i hope its not replaced.

    This is the dumbest thing ever. Is this a cricket forum or a Greenpeace forum? It was a tree. Get over it. At the same time that two West Indian legends passed away, people want to discuss a tree? Incredible.

    Yeah me too.. Not as bad as some places I have seen, but I find it very pointless to have a tree in the way..

    This is a cricket ground near me in Somerset in winter.. The square is the browny area that is slightly to the right..

    shut up.

    Who are you to decide who or what we discuss? nothing stops you starting your own thread about anyone who passed away recently.
