    There is no point in being polite because I have never had any notice taken of my opinions. Haha. I am desperately trying to get the council to plant more trees in my street. Have to wait another year! I keep seeing applications for removing trees. What part of global warming don’t you understand? The tree has been there for a long time.

    These two trees were left when the other 4 or so trees that formed a nice glade there were removed when the Salvation Army hall was redesigned several years ago. So now there is to be one? They used to be well loved and used by the lorikeets and other birds (especially as neighbouring Westfield reduced trees on its land) but a bright modern design seemed to consider them inappropriate. I have never much liked the Sally Army since and don't use that thrift shop as a personal protest at the way greenery is removed with no concern for other lifeforms that depend on it for food and habitat. We also need greenery for our well being and mental and physical health as well as for cooling the concrete heat island, removing pollutants from the air, taking water underground to avoid flooding etc. Trees also need companions (science is finding out they are more aware and cooperative with other trees than we knew) so leaving one by itself is akin to cruelty.

    What is the problem with this tree that it has to be removed? We need trees in our world to help battle climate change. We need trees in our neighbourhood - so many of them are being removed to allow for redevelopment of our residential blocks and the tenants of these new developments do not plant trees - just go for a long walk and you'll see exactly what I am talking about.
    I do not support the removal of this tree at all.

    And another one bites the dust.

    Can we please know the reason for the request to cut down such a beautiful tree? I agree wholeheartedly with the other comments. Having lived in this area for over 45 years I am sickened by the amount of tree canopy lost over this time. Our suburb has been a haven for birds over the years but I fear we will soon become bereft of any wildlife with destruction such as this.

    Been to the eastern suburbs recently? Mitcham, Hawthorn, Melrose Park......Beautiful tree lined streets everywhere. Is it the residents or their council?

    Every time a block is subdivided in this council area any mature trees on the footpath must go. Some scrubby low growing thing may be put back after a few years.

    Why doesn't every main road in the Marion Council have the same beautiful gums that are on Marion Rd in front of the council depot? Same as the one being chopped down? Power lines, falling limbs, root damage to footpaths, storm water debris, blather, blather, blather....

    I agree that we need all the urban regulated and significant trees we have and consent to remove them should only be given if they are considered dangerous by the council arborist.
