    We live over in Donald Street and hope the native tree in the rear of this development can be saved? Too many mature trees of all sorts have disappeared to medium-density housing on the Peninsula. Council seem to wave these DA's through, so we all suffer the effects of heat intensity afterwards, not to mention our local animals lose a home.

    Please can the developer work around the mature native tree on rear of this property?
    The peninsula is already the hottest suburb on the coast due to the lack of trees and continued cutting of mature trees.
    This canopy of this mature tree provides valuable cooling, habitat, and pollution reduction for the area.
    Council please can you adopt a tree plan to ensure valuable trees like this can remain and more are planted across the barren peninsula. Is there any reason why the peninsula cannot become a leafy suburb like those found in North Sydney - where people can venture out to shops in the heat of summer under the protection of the trees

    Strongly agreed with Mellie and Dave. I do hope the Council has a stringent rule in placed in perserving and replacing all the trees in the area.

    Knight Mapleton are in the habit of bulldozing everything on site. I would be happy if I was proved wrong on this occasion. Perhaps they could see trees as an asset to potential buyers rather than an inconvenience.
    Please preserve all trees on this site and any future applications.

    Keeping mature trees improves the sale price of your build. These days buyers really value the many benefits they provide. Shade, relief from summer heat, homes for birds that keep the pest population down as it’s their food and enjoyment of having beautiful bird life in their yards.
    Trees also help with noise.
    "It’s the sound produced by the wind passing through the leaves that really helps muffle noise," explains Robert Smith, a staff arborist for the Arbor Day Foundation. As a bonus, trees also provide habitat for birds, whose twitterings add to the pleasant background sounds. A properly designed buffer of trees and shrubs can reduce noise by about five to ten decibels — or about 50 percent as perceived by the human ear, according to the USDA National Agroforestry Center.

    For maximum effect, experts suggest planting a variety of both hedges or shrubs and taller trees to create a wall of foliage from the ground up.
