    This is becoming almost a weekly occurrence. Trees should be removed if there is a genuine health/hazard risk but even in those circumstances, they should be replaced. We have a local population of possums and other wildlife that we have an obligation to nurture.

  2. Ana Strophe commented

    So many trees - three at once - being destroyed! So much native habitat lost in an area that is almost completely denuded and desperately needs more habitat - and more shade. This is wholesale destruction and runs counter to all council's stated policies on greening and climate mitigation. Habitat removal, especially on this scale (including the birds of paradise), should not be permitted by council. When there are no pollinators left because there is no habitat or food for them, there will be no gardens of any kind, not even pot plants.

    I agree with the comments of Ana Strophe and SM.

    I am opposed to the removal of these trees ( including the Bird of Paradise).

    These trees attract and sustain many different and diverse native birds.

    No reasons have been given for the removal of this particular tree.

    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.

    Cutting down a mature fiddle leaf fig!? Whaaaat...!?
    At least try to transplant it first (that could go for the bird of paradise too).

    Please do not allow these trees including the birds of paradise, to be chopped down. It’s land clearing without any regard for our native population. We are fast losing the small amount of canopy we have left, and this forces possums onto the ground in order to attempt to get to the next tree. Because of this, they are often killed by cars or mauled to death by cats that roam our streets every night. Waverley Council, please say no to this application.

    I would like to know what is the reason for removing these trees - seven of them!

    I read these Planning Alerts with increasing dismay: every day there are requests to remove trees.

    This cannot go on.

    Please can the Council do something to stop this degradation of our surroundings; trees are especially important in built-up areas, for all the reasons people are constantly pointing out: shade, beauty, habitat, pollination, increase of property values, etc.

    I agree with all of the above comments.
    And in general the removal of trees without any valid compelling reason must not be even considered and allowed to be submitted.
