Wow I think this is way off base.  Community gardens are a mix of  community 
and private space.  People participate for both reasons and both  need to be 
honored.  Just as the individuals benefit from the community,  the community 
benefits from the individuals who lovingly tend their spaces as  well as tending 
to the whole.  Indeed the cg did provide a place for the  tree to thrive and 
the gardener provided a tree for the community to  enjoy.  As to how the tree 
'went missing' -- someone chose to cut it  down -- either another gardener or 
group of gardeners who were preparing  the garden for the new fence, or the 
fence company.  Seems that it is human  nature for the gardener to seek 
compensation, even if the amount is way too high  and even if a better solution is 
simply for no $ to go to the gardener, but for  the tree to be replaced.
