I would like Unley Council to explain why this tree can be removed when others may not be. Is it only the girth of the tree? The species involved? The damage the tree may be causing? How do you quantify the benefits of a tree to balance against its negative aspects. Tree removal is a controversial issue. More information required please.
From Fran Smith to local councillor Jennie Boisvert
Thankyou Fran, I don't know the answer but can find out. I went to look at the tree and it is almost certainly regulated or significant and as such needs an approval to remove if it has been deemed to be unstable by an arborist. I'll bet back to you, Regards, Jennie
Dear Fran, l have now had time to contact the Council arborist. Both he and an independent arborist have assessed the tree. Both believe it is in imminent danger of failing completely and should be removed to reduce any risk to public safety, Regards, Jennie
