In Bondi Junction NSW on “Remove ot prune one Avocado...” at 6-8 Botany Street Bondi Junction NSW 2022:

Gayle Walker commented

It would be more informative if the description of this TPO made sense. Do they want to remove the tree or prune it? I do not object to pruning trees, however, I do object if the request is to remove the tree altogether. Avocados are a high-grade food source for native animals, especially possums. The bleak Waverley landscape is mostly made up of inedible brick, concrete, steel and glass. Please do not destroy a valuable food source. In your decision making process, keep in mind that trees provide shade, lower temperatures, clean the air and beautify the streetscape for human beings. They also provide habitat for birds. The loss of tree canopy across the LGA forces nocturnal animals to the ground, where they run a life or death gauntlet every night. They need to be thought of when making decisions that may end up resulting in their death.
