In Epping NSW on “Tree Application - 9 x TREE...” at 34 Boronia Avenue Epping NSW 2121:

Kylie Kellett commented

As a nearby resident I strongly object to the removal of 9 trees from the property 34 Boronia Avenue Epping. The developers who own this property and 32 Boronia Avenue are seeking approval to remove these trees as they want to build an eye hospital in a R2 low density residential zone. All the trees are healthy and two are significant indigenous gum trees of some 20 plus metres. The arborists report supplied by the developers in DA/769/2018 states they are in "good" health and should be considered for retention. The report also states and I quote;

“The ecological significance and habitat value of the trees has
not been assessed and is beyond the scope of this report.”

Why have they not been assessed?

These trees provide streetscape and landscape of our residential area. They provide homes for birdlife. They cannot be replaced and are more valuable to local residents than an eye hospital.
