Apple tree cut down

The tree cutting continues, and the last couple of days they have been chipping up the cuttings and now the remains of the apple tree can be clearly seen, why they have cut this particular tree down is baffling. It is the only one to be cut in the immediate area and nothing else has been touched, looking at the rings of the remains, it must have been 35 to 40 years old.
