    There are 3 trees in front of this property! which tree is being removed? There is no reason given as to why the tree is being removed. Looking at the streetscape the Eucalyptus is the only one in the street for some distance, As such, it is important as far as habitat and food for native birds.
    Eucalyptus in urban environments are very important and should only be removed as a last resort.

    I am dismayed, disappointed, stunned, you name it, at the number of tree removal applications in the Waverley LGA. There are no documents to view on council’s website as to the reason for clearing this tree. Is it wantonly desire or are there significant issues with the tree...and precisely which tree is it? Where are our native animals ( remember them?) going to find food and shelter when tree felling is so broad reaching? Our planet needs more trees, not fewer. We need a moratorium on tree removal. Will there be a replacement tree?

    As I looked more closely at the front of this house, I am wondering if the smaller tree is the one which they want removed. It looks like it might be planted too close to the larger tree, which also appears to have a possum box attached to it. This big tree, if it is used by possums, is significant and much needed in our area. If there is not room for the smaller tree to grow and if it is impeding the larger one, then I question whether the tree can be pruned to a smaller size or if it is removed, can another tree be planted farther from the large tree?

    @Gayle Walker

    You have both touched on an important and highly contentious issue.
    Where indeed will the birds, animals and native fish go?

    Fortunately, I have spoken to the aforementioned parties and they are happy to move to one of several other trees located in the immediate vicinity, and wider Sydney.

    There are two main reasons for this:

    (1) The animals have expressed their safety concerns as there are power lines running directly through their home.

    (2) They have also expressed that rent in the area is too high, and Ted the possum is having to work two jobs to live at this location.

    However, as you are dismayed, disappointed, stunned and everything else in between, perhaps this course of action is insufficient...

    As an alternative, could we just knock down the house behind the tree?
