    There is no documentation yet under this request. Removing 6 trees is a big ask and this will have an impact on animals that depend on these trees. It will also impact the look and feel of the neigbourhood. Careful assessment of this request must be done by the Council.

    This application appears to contain no justification for such a significant request. The location of the property is adjacent to bushland and this canopy is significant.
    More detail is warranted here.

    I feel this application is quite vague and there is no supporting documentation. Is the request for the removal of (6) trees and pruning other trees? What is the reason for the removal (health of tree in question?). Requests for tree removals are coming in at such a rapid rate that the council really should be requesting supporting documentation as to the reasons. Arborist reports should need to be provided to give the council the health and value of the trees to be removed. Many of the old, established gums are being removed in Chatswood, Roseville, Lindfield and surrounding leafy areas.

    There is a reason I am seeing more bird species in my own native 1700 square metre yard in Roseville and is likely due to habitat removal. I have planted many new gums to try to compensate for the loss around me but they will take 10-20 years to reach maturity (and much longer in some cases).
