    Silver birches are beautiful trees. Yes they are deciduous but cleaning up fallen leaves is good exercise. Why are the applicants asking for this to be removed?

    Waverley is green LGA . If someone wants to prune a silver Birch , they should be allowed to do so without having to approach council and the entire community . Its inefficient and unnecessary . The tree isnt even a native to Australia

    I feel for the owners having to engage if this ridiculous process .

    George they are removing it not pruning it and why does it not being a native tree make any difference.

    Waverley's tree canopy is not impressive. It's around 17% according to a report from the University of Technology, Sydney. The owners are requesting a removal, not pruning. I can never find any documents on Council's website to indicate if there are problems associated with trees which makes it difficult to comment but if the tree is healthy, it should stay.

    I find it strange that everyone has a opinion about pruning or removal of a single tree without seeing the circumstances of the house , the tree and the neighbors . People cannot simply take a black/white approach to such matters . People have a right to prune and/or remove tree's for a variety of reasons. Council have many safe guards and pre-requisites to the assessment of such matters . Simple stating that a tree must stay because of a statistic noted in a Uni report or because cleaning leaves is " good exercise" is not reasons enough .
