25 Gibson Street Bronte NSW 2024

Remove and replace one (1) Camphor Laurel from rear, right side of property. This tree is unsuitable & unsustainable in its location, it is destabilising the boundary fence line, and there is evidence of included bark and large buttress roots forming in both properties. This tree has dropped large branches over the years and has blocked both properties’ sewer lines. The canopy overhangs the three neighbouring properties, to prune this tree away from them would require a significant amount to be removed, leaving the tree as a poor specimen. This tree presents an unacceptable level of risk to the residence and neighbouring properties.

    This tree is a noxious environmental weed and should be removed before the prolific seeds are spread even wider by birds and other wildlife.

    When the state has lost such a huge number of animals and trees in the bushfires, removing large trees in NSW, even if they are exotic, seems anachronistic. We are at an ecological tipping point following the bushfires.

    Our wildlife has been forced to utilise the exotic vegetation with which we have replaced the native species, and now to remove the exotic trees as well is not kind. It would be better if the tree could remain and an alternative solution for the property owner's building plans could be found.

    At the very least it would be best to keep the tree during bird nesting season which ends after February, as many bird species have sought refuge in the city while the burnt forests recover.. They have lost their normal nesting sites and food. 80% of the Shoalhaven, south of Sydney was burnt out including 90% of its national parks. The Shoalhaven has lost 72% of its terrestrial animals and the bird loss has not yet been calculated..Our surviving wildlife is in extremis and we need to include this in consideration of any tree removal...
