NEW YORK (AP) — Four 30-foot trees have been cut down at a Trump Organization-run golf course in New York City, and police are searching for the vandals.

The Daily News ( ) says a golf course manager discovered the damage Tuesday morning. Police recovered a chain saw near one of the severed 30-foot trees.

The 18-hole Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point in the Bronx is owned by the city, but the Trump Organization maintains the contract to run it.

Advocates have objected to a proposal to extend the course into a 19½ acre waterfront area that had been earmarked for future public park land.

The Trump Organization says part of the land would become a wildlife sanctuary. It wants the redesign so major PGA tournaments could be held there.
