    I love this tree and value its contribution to our environment. Its role in cleaning our air , cooling our inner city suburb and as a meeting spot and habitat for many birdsis important. I also know how it causes stress and worry to the owners of the property. I would like council to provide some assistance for residents in this situation . Maybe with an arborist to maintain safety of this tree to quell fears from neighbours re falling branches .Those of us who live close to the tree gain many benefits but the worry and expense is born by the owners alone .

    I believe Unley council are committed to retaining trees and value the role trees play in creating shade, cooling the area, habitat, and storage of carbon. I also very much admire this tree. If it’s sound then it should stay. State and local government need to be firm on protecting mature trees, both on public and privately owned land, if we are to have any left especially with the change in planning legislation which does little to address environmental concerns. Thank you.

    I agree with Susan and Leah - this is truly a magnificent tree and should be retained. I hope permission will not be granted to remove it. The Council does provide grants to help with pruning regulated and significant trees - information on the Council website.
