    This property over the years has had all its trees removed. This is in the heart of the area severely affected by tree removals. I cant understand why more removals can possibly be approved , knowingly degrading this area.

    On google maps the street view for 52 Hobart Avenue shows this residential block had many mature trees in December 2007. I tried to unsuccessfully post this photo to my comment.
    Then street view & 360deg, for 52 Hobart Avenue shows this same residential block has one tree to the side of the house. Is this the tree to be removed? Why? This tree has be there beside the house for many decades. Can it just be pruned? We are losing so many mature trees on the peninsula. Replacement trees are helpful, but will take many decades to really replace such a mature tree. Meanwhile we will be experiencing greater heat effects during our increasingly hot summer months and having less shade trees.

    Note to commenters: my recent posts on PA alerts have not reached Council - they’ve switched it off (also Snap Send Solve ap link!). Best to go back to using ask@centralcoast.nsw.gov.AU
    PA is useful however to get notifications & DA numbers on properties then go to ask@

    Do these tree removal applications require a reason? I can't see anything on the application to indicate why it was being removed but I can see it was approved within 7 days, which seems very quick.

    Seeing Umina being needlessly stripped of it's beautiful trees is heart wrenching on so many levels and I wish council would do more to preserve them.

    Another tree removal approved by Craig Glynn the CCC officer. Is he on a mission to completely remove all remaining mature trees on the Peninsula?
    Without the Greener Places Strategy adopted in full by CCC, there will be no protections for our remaining trees. Could he please give valid reasons for their removal? Birds are nesting for the next generation of bird species. Does our council care?

    Why does everybody criticize the removal of trees I had to to have 2 removed because they where diseased council will not give permission unless there is a valid reason for the removal you don’t know the full story so don’t comment unless you know the facts

    Darren I totally agree with you my mum some of my friends have had to have native trees removed. Some of the reasons for this is ad you diseased trees! Trees to close to electrical wires ,trees lifting up driveways! Trees that propose a danger and the list goes on. As you would know Darren it is not a cheap process then you have to buy a tree replacement etc. The public do not see what the council officer has to do this includes a lot paperwork. Trees are only removed if they need to be. Some of trees are very old and dangerous.

    Regards

    It is true that the mature trees, diseased or not, become "more dangerous" and more likely to be diseased, the closer one builds to them or parks cars near them. The trees also are less likely to overcome disease as property owners degrade the close habitat for example by placing a driveway close to the trees roots or excavating around them. Every tree removed, makes it more likely that another nearby tree will be next in line due to "disease". Once the insects and birds and mammals leave the trees due to the close human habitat, and shortage of other nearby trees, then we have the chain reaction of tree disease and removal.
