In Waverley NSW on “Remove one (1) Eucalyptus...” at 39 Wiley Street Waverley NSW 2024:

Rodney Scherer commented

I do agree about the loss of habitat, without knowing what the species is it is difficult to say if it could be successfully pruned or coppiced. It is very tall and gangly and probably drops branches! It's a shame as it is the only decent tree in that location. Please try to prune it a bit at a time and see if it can be saved. There are no such things a transplantable mature native tree the best that could be done is a Grevilia Robusta. Good for birds, Screening and when mature and needs to go can provide a beautiful timber. Why more are not grown? (probably because they drop dead flowers, birds pick them off and bird droppings can be a tad messy in that regard!) An exotic which I love and can be transplanted as decent size tree is Liriodendron tulipifera. Deciduous, great shade, and fabulous green and orange flowers. The Tulip tree can be pruned and provide beautiful cool shade in the blistering heat.
