    I object to the removal of so many trees from this premises. We need trees for wildlife, shade etc. Could council please reject the removal of so many trees.

  2. Deborah Prosser Baffsky commented

    Why is someone taking so many trees out?

  3. John S. Batts commented

    Quite! Waverley Council's policy on trees looks a little hollow when reads about so many DAs that include removal (or "pruning" -- and that term may be euphemistic!).

  4. Simon Higgins commented

    The removal of so many, and number of varieties of trees seems excessive.
    I would hope Council planners examine this proposal closely.
    The trees on this block have been established over many decades and it would be favourable to the streetscape to see them maintained.

  5. Ilona Hajnal commented

    Too many trees are disappearing in the Waverley Council area. Woollahra Council has very stringent criteria when it comes to applications for pruning and removal; l know as I have another property there. Waverley should look very carefully at this (and other similar) applications so as to preserve our developed trees and once-beautiful streetscapes.

  6. Deborah Prosser commented

    I agree with you Ilona, actually Waverley council used to have a more thorough criteria and make people replace the trees they removed through disease, age or the renovations they were undertaking. More and more in Waverley it feels like there is no longer care or concern for the long term outcomes of tree removals and over development.Having lived here all my life, as did my father, it is extremely upsetting to feel that the Council is not putting into place a more considered long term considerations of the impact of decisions on the landscape and infrastructure of this area.
