In Ringwood VIC on “Remove 2 trees” at 18 Herbert Street, Ringwood VIC 3134:

Liz commented

trees on this site are mature with large canopies and are valuable to the area. Looking at the whole area on Google map, it is quite evident that dual occupancy housing is becomming the new normal for that location. It is likely that the tree removal is requested to disencumber the land for subsequent erection of a house at the rear.
In instances such as this Council must ensure replacement tall trees are replanted after development, and also ensure that % site cover is witning the new open land requirements for soil hydrology, in the open space.
If these requirements and sustianability building practices are required also, then we must unfortunately accept the removal of some of the trees at the rear. It would be good if one could be left and protected and trees replaced where appropriate.
