CWN Editor's Note: The town of Rosello, Italy, was slated to donate a 200-year-old tree to serve as the Christmas tree in St. Peter’s Square.

“Local activists started flagging problems, such as the lack of transparency concerning the donation and the failure to carry out an environmental impact study,” according to the report. The tree was outside town land, in a protected area, and now a different town will donate a tree.
