    This beautiful, very old sugar gum is about 15m tall and and it would be a significant loss to the area if it was cut down. Trees like this make Parkside the green, leafy place we all love to live in yet the Unley Council continue to allow them to be cut down.
    A huge pink peppercorns tree (not significant) was removed from 116 Leicester Street in the last year meaning that if this tree gets approval, two very large trees within 10m of each other would be gone. All the beautiful shade, the natural habitat for birds and the environmental benefits to us all would be gone.
    I believe the reason the tree is earmarked to be removed is because the roots are pushing up the driveway of 114 and/ or causing structural damage to the carport. The Unley Council gave approval for the carport to be erected in 1996. The stunning, huge tree has been there for hundreds of years.
    Please do not cut this tree down. It has taken hundreds of years to grow this big and can’t be rebuilt......a carport can be though.

    Across the whole breadth of the Unley Council area, beautiful old trees are being slain, often for the convenience of developers or because people are unable to adapt nonessential constructs (such as car ports or sheds) around their long existence. It won’t be long before there will be no shade or birdsong left in Unley unless we stop this casual slaughter of beautiful trees. Why even bother with having a ‘significant tree’ register, if it affords no protection against the inconvenience of having to adapt car port designs?

    Every house in thuisbases suffers from crack and movement due to the soil. It would be massive shame to lose another beautiful tree and habitat knowing that even when it’s gone houses will still crack and move. If the council keeps getting rid of these trees it won’t be a leave green suburb anymore.
