    Please don’t remove more trees. As trees are removed in Sydney, as is happening quickly, our temperature goes up. It's especially problematic as concrete and hard surfaces prevail. What kind of city do you want to live in. Soon Sydney will be unliveable. Already that is happening in western Sydney and we are close.

    Deirdre, really? Do you actually live in the area? I agree with your general sentiment. We do need to ensure there is an abundance of trees, green space etc for the very reasons you put forward. But... you make this glib response to this simply because a person wishes to remove what are most likely nuisance trees, on that basis without supporting your opinion with any facts or even awareness of the context. I have lived only a couple of blocks away from this property for nearly 30 years, When I purchased my home I looked forward to the sunlight it would provide my garden and the opportunity to live more sustainably by making a considerable investment installing solar panels. Thanks to ill-conceived platnings of in some cases, oranamtal species of trees, I no longer have sufficient sunlight in my back yard to grow vegetables and my solar panels are becomnig useless. Please consider making informed comments.

    I agree with Mr Harvey. There are too many people from outside the area complaining. There are 20-30 of us in Canterbury who were hoping for redevelopment, and suddenly all these people we had never heard of and never seen around the area started lobbying hard to stop redevelopment in our long neglected area. Council pays too much attention to noisy outsiders, and not enough to actual residents.

    I find it very hard to believe that people planting trees in their gardens have had an affect on solar panels and the ability to grow vegetables. There are many, many locals who do not want any more development. Many of us want more trees to beautify our area which has been ruined in some parts by many apartment buildings without any green spaces and with only minimal plantings.

    Janet Stankiewicz please do not question my honesty. You have not lived in my house since I purchased it 27 years ago nor been in my backyard.

    Stop cutting down trees. We have the most beautiful trees we planted 52 years ago. They provide a haven for the birds owls etc. The house opposite was sold and all the trees cut down it is now bare such a tragedy. I reported it to Council and no action was taken.

  7. Fact Checker commented

    Hey people, find some details before you comment. The two trees being cut down are a hibiscus and a camellia, neither of them particularly large or native.

    They are being replaced threefold with native lillypilly trees.

    Don’t just focus on the headline, read the documents
