    I cannot believe that the council has requested that you remove a tree! Normally they prefer to manage plans so that we maintain the trees.

    The application is for removal of a gum tree (and palm tree.)
    If the tree is an issue for your neighbour's new build they should reconfigure their design in order to not damage your tree.
    I urge council to start protecting more trees. Development needs to become more tree sensitive in design.
    The Shire is starting to look very bare and the wildlife is losing it's habitat. Too many established and often healthy trees are being removed daily with council's permission, especially in Caringbah South with very few trees being properly replaced with new native trees.

    This is an absolutely ludicrous proposal to design a house on a 1740 sq. Metre property that requires a neighbour’s tree to be removed.
    Surely the council’s response should have been to say go back to the drawing board and design the house around existing trees ect.
    I live opposite a development on a 2700sq. M
    Block and only 1 significant tree has been retained, the council even let them chop down a huge gum that was almost on the back boundary (app. 1 metre girth and 35-30 metres high). Last time I will vote liberal in Sutherland Council.
