    There is just far too much tree removal in this area. We have actually noticed. a dramatic decline in both numbers and varieties of birds in the area this year - a sudden drop after a long steady decline. This will also mean a loss of pollinating insects and the eventual loss of all gardens in the area. Property owners need to. know that research shows mature trees add tens of thousands of dollars in value to their properties, and they shouldn't assume renovations will necessarily add as much value, especially into the future. If the Bird of Paradise is permitted to go it should be moved elsewhere in the neighbourhood rather then being destroyed. But tree removal contradicts council's stated policies on greening and climate mitigation - are we now to assume these policies have no real meaning?

    I agree with the comments made by Ana Strophe.

    Birds of Paradise attract and sustain many different and diverse native birds.

    No reasons have been given for its removal.

    Too many of our mature trees are being removed or their canopies are being “pruned” so aggressively that they can no longer sustain the current wildlife and birds.

    I strongly object to its removal.

    I wish to amend my previous comments/submission as I did not mean to exclude the Cyprus Tree and Paperback Tree.

    I agree with the comments made by Ana Strophe.

    Birds of Paradise, Cyprus and paperback trees attract and sustain many different and diverse native birds.

    No reasons have been given for iheir removal.

    We’ve been living in Bronte Rd for only 6 months and we’ve already seen good trees removed in two nearby properties. It is too much! The bird life here is very rich and is being dramatically endangered by this tree cutting and pruning approach.
    We agree with the comments above, especially that about contradicting policies and actions. Why are councils approving these proposals?

    Hi All
    I am a journalism student and for a current assignment on Flora in the Waverley Council LGA I would like to interview community members for their thoughts about environmental initiatives (bush regeneration) by Waverley Council. If anyone would be willing to give me a few moments of your time please email me at admin@harastys.com.au.
    I would like to get an in person video interview but I understand due to Covid if you would prefer a Zoom online interview.

    I would like the council to explain how they will mitigate the loss of trees in this area, and how are they are showing commitment to their environmental policies by approving these DAs.

    In other council areas they require the owner to plant another tree and normally specify it to be a native (and in my view would be good to have suitable in high urban environments eg not too tall where root system interferes in drainage etc as well as views.
