A strange incident at Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point in the Bronx occurred wherein vandals used a chainsaw to cut down four 30-foot-tall trees, officials confirmed Wednesday.
The police were able to recover the chainsaw from the scene, which the course’s general manager discovered at about 9:30 AM Tuesday.

Two vandals climbed an iron fence to get to the trees, cop sources said.

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.
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.
