An article regarding the stupidity of the Hunters Hill Council which will leave their ratepayers more than $200,000 out of pocket.
And all for a feral Camphor Laurel tree which is listed as Category 3 in Restricted Matter in Qld.
At least our local Council is a lot smarter than this lot.
The Council placed a notification sign outside the front fence of a nearby house prior to a tree outside the front fence being removed, and another is presently outside another nearby property so I stopped to read it.
It advised that 2 large Ponciana trees on the verge were to be removed due to the damage their roots were causing to infrastructure on the property and that hopefully the trees could be replaced with a couple of suitable ones.
