I've read a comment by Simon Dixon.

Whilst we all should love trees, and we need them, some trees need to go. I too have been receiving Planning Alerts for a number of years. There seems to be a small number of people besides "Lou" who respectively care and make comments/objections about tree removals, people like David Grover, Jenkins Peter J, Peter Jenkins and Peter Hayes. Interestingly their objections are not always about trees in the same suburb or streets close to each objection. Yes they may care about the environment, but how can these people be honestly objective if they are not familiar with that particular home.

I know of a lady who planted a tree (pine) for Christmas in front of her living room, on a water front property, that was 40 years ago, imagine that tree now, no view now, what would be the chance of having that removed?

Its now a stage in my life that I will NOT plant a tree on my property, in fear that I may never be able to remove it in the future. Am I the only one with this thought? Yes council needs to encourage planting of trees, but also be a lot more amenable for removal. Maybe a register that you register planting a tree, and if so you can remove it without any consequence or fees to gain approval to remove.

"Why grow dope when you can plant a greenie?"
