The trees were only planted last month

The cherry blossom trees were among 120 which had been planted at the park as part of a project to mark 150 years of Japan-UK friendship.

Local MP Andrew Bowie, who was involved in the project, said: “I am crestfallen that such a positive project for Stonehaven and the Mearns has been damaged already.

"The school pupils, sea cadets and local volunteers who gave their time to plant these trees - they all put so much into this. If this is the work of vandals, they will have a heavy burden on their consicence today.”
