    I completely agree with the removal of this tree. They are completely inappropriate for the residential setting. They have seed pods that can weigh up to 20kg. God forbid one land on a child! It would be irresponsible for the council to not permit its removal.

  2. Amanda Hendriks commented

    I do not approve of the removal of this Norfolk Island Pine, for what reason ?
    The previous comment states that the seed pods weigh up to 20 kg. This is incorrect , the tree they are referring to is the Bunya Bunya Tree.
    The Norfolk Island cone is approx 6 - 10 cms and is a valuable food source for parrots who peel the fan shaped seeds from the cone and eat them.

    Norfolk Island Pine trees are far too large for residential properties. They are more suited to parks. Surely a more suitable native tree could be planted.

    In response to Amanda’s comments, having lived with one of these trees in my yard I can assure you, from personal experience, that they do get to up to 20kg, & when they hit the ground they sound like a bomb going off!

    I agree wholeheartedly with Betty, replacement on the property with a more appropriate native tree would be a suitable solution.

    I saw this ex Chrismas tree being planted over 20 yrs ago - it is in a very small tight area not suited for a tree - the skinny tree now has an extreme height which is close to a 3 storey building - this makes it stressful and scary to live here - it looks like the tree will topple onto our heads any day.
