The Joshua tree made famous by U2’s 1987 album The Joshua Tree has remained a popular Mojave Desert spot for fans going-on 30 years. However, during a recent visit, one fan noticed someone had vandalized one of its limbs.
In the forum section of fan website atu2, member “Hwy 190″ wrote about the shocking discovery:
“This past Sunday, I made my proverbial yearly hike out to the Tree with my dog to reminisce only to find that some hack and I do mean hack, decided it was a bright idea to take a hacksaw to one of the Tree’s limbs – evidently to remove an inch thick cross section as a souvenir. Are you kidding me?”
