A spring picture from a visit to an abandoned area in central Copenhagen.
Previously there were small garden lots that people could lease to grow their own fruit, vegetables, flowers, or trees. They also had small cozy self-built cabins there that they could use during summer.
It's called "garden associations" and we have a lot of them. Allegedly, way back when it was decided by The City that the poor people in the city should have an opportunity to grow their own gardens. Today they're very expensive, as is everything.
This particular garden association was the oldest in the city. It had grown to become very beautiful, as people there invested years in their small garden lots.
One or two years back The City Of Copenhagen sold this land to "SKANSKA", an international contractor, less the inhabitants. Some people moved to the offered replacement land right next to a main road, and some people just gave up.
Now all people are evicted, all buildings are torn down and the area just grows. Fenced in, as it is. It's not possible/legal to use the area for any type of new construction. Never was. So, wasteland is the only option no.
Some people burned down their houses out of frustration in the process. This tree bears a mark of that.
