Tree Vandalism

I just want to bring attention to vandalism that was done to one of the small trees in the park.
I have no idea who would have done this. It’s upsetting that this kind of destruction has happened.
If anyone has any idea who could have done this or how this was done, please share your information with the Pier Park staff and Friends of Pier Park.

The black lines on the picture of the tree indicate where the damage is. The girdling on the main trunk goes half way around. The girdling on the upright branch encircles the entire branch.
Pier Park staff, Portland Parks and the Urban Forester have been notified.
