    Dear Sir/Madam

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

    Many bird species have sought refuge in the city while the burnt forests recover.. They have lost their normal nesting sites and food.

    The biodiversity hotspot of the state was the Shoalhaven, which is a huge pregion south of Sydney extending to the far south coast. 80% of the Shoalhaven 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. The percentage loss in other parts of the state from the 2019/2020 fires, and from the drought, is not available, but is massive.

    Our surviving wildlife is in extremis and we need to include this in consideration of any tree removal.

    And apart from the fauna loss, there is a huge percentage of tree loss, which means there are less trees to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, so the speed of the onset of climate change is increased. If we don't want our planet to turn into a hard brown rock like our sister planet Venus, which was a blue and green planet before it overheated, then we must start being serious in all that we do to slow climate change.

    Any trees, especially mature ones, should be retained now unless they pose a danger.

    Thank you

    I agree with the above comments that it is incomprehensible to be removing healthy beneficial trees which contribute so much and are so valuable in so many ways.

    Established trees are especially valuable, and Waverley is known to be a suburb that would benefit from more trees rather than less.

    More trees are a goal and priority of local, state and global governments, and established healthy trees in Waverley should be retained and encouraged.

    Please reject this application for tree removal. Our native animals are fighting every day and night for survival and the arboreal animals need tree canopy so they can remain off the ground as much as possible, because that is where they often lose their lives to cats, dogs and cars. Our tree canopy is dwindling and as a result, they are losing the battle. Trees also provide a cool haven for birds. This isn’t just about one tree, it is about the cumulative effects of deforestation and what that means for every living thing on this planet.

    Firewheel Trees provide a food source for local fauna and would be a source of shade.They are native vegetation and should be preserved .We request that Council rejects this application for the above reasons -perhaps careful pruning could be an option.
