Who cut the blossom?

EVERY YEAR in the spring I walk down Coldyhill Lane to see a very unusual and special tree.

It has both pink and white blossom. I was told that the pink blossom tree was grafted on to the white blossom tree over 60 years ago. I have taken photos, which I enclose.

Yesterday I was very upset to discover that someone had cut off the pink blossom tree.

Does anyone know who did this and why?
