In Balwyn North VIC on “Post RequestConstruction of...” at 1086 Burke Road Balwyn North VIC 3104:

Gerald commented

Today's tree felling event at 1086 Burke Road Balwyn North is very distressing. The Council arborist assured me last year (September) that the significant canopy tree, Cedrus Deodara (Deodar Cedar), was protected and would be there for many more years. Yes, the removal of the branches last year compromised the appearance of the tree, but I noticed this morning that more upper branches had been removed, and by this afternoon the whole tree has been bulldozed. I also feel gutted! Another magnificent canopy tree has been removed from the area - and on the day when Premier Andrews announced logging of old growth forest has been banned immediately. Pity Boroondara Council can't do same for our old growth canopy trees in our local gardens. Developers win again!
