At first, it looks like Christmas came early for these trees. However looking at the other trees, you will notice their leaves are still rich green. That's because it was summer still. For whatever reason, someone set fire to these trees in the middle of this very natural park in East London.
The reason notwithstanding, it would have made one heck of a great photo at the height of the fire. Luckily these trees are quite isolated. There could have been a bit of a disaster if the fire had spread.
