A social media user shared the heartbreaking image on Reddit on Thursday after he noticed that the tree was incised.

The image showed that the tree was cut, so that only a small part of the root trunk was visible through the soil.

& # 39; I was there yesterday looking at Bob Hawke's tree & # 39 ;, the user wrote, adding that the action & # 39; layer & # 39; used to be.

& # 39; Whichever way you lean, this is a living tree that has been killed by someone to harass residents and tourists and take a stand against someone who will probably never come again. & # 39;

The user said that no other tree was damaged in the Prime Minister's Corridor or Oaks.
