Vandals cut down trees at Trump's Bronx golf course: NYPD

Cops are investigating a bizarre incident at Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point in the Bronx, where vandals cut down four 30-foot tall trees with a chainsaw, officials said Wednesday.
Police recovered the chainsaw at the scene of the severed trees, which a golf course general manager discovered inside the Ferry Point green space at about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, officials said.
Two vandals climbed an iron fence to get to the trees, cop sources said.
The Trump Organization and the city have been at odds over the course, located on Hutchinson River Parkway, for the past year.
The site opened in 2015.
Trump now wants to expand the golf course, but the city is refusing to green light the request.
The Trump Organization pitched its case to expand the golf course at the Bronx’s Community Board 10 in November.
Their proposal included a 2013 letter from golf legend Jack Nicklaus endorsing the expansion, which would make the course eligible for major tournaments, the Trump Organization said.
Nicklaus designed the Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point.
The plans would extend the course into a waterfront area that the city has marked off as future public park land — enraging parks advocates.
The motive behind the vandalism was not immediately clear.
Police sources said cops were searching for video to track the vandals’ movements before and after they entered the golf course.
No arrests have been made.
