There were problems in One Tree Hill today, when the tree that gives the fictional town its name was cut down.
The town is the backdrop for a fictional tv documentary, that focuses on the lives and loves of some American teenagers, playing basketball, seeing their dads go to prison, and falling in love with their friends, none of whom has fallen out of the ugly tree.
Major Goldie Wilson III said 'This is dreadful. Now, there is nothing to separate us from the Wire. The tree was our USP Man, no what are we going to do. We can't even have murders, because that has already happened'
Basketball loving Nathan said: 'I will see if my evil Dad Dan has had anything to do with it'
The incident is said to be forming the backdrop in Lucas Scott's third attempt at the great American novel.
