Following community concerns regarding the controversial Figtree Park DA to remove 37 trees (see August posts below), Council resolved to review the DA and the scale of the infrastructure. No word yet but we’re looking forward to hearing the new proposals for this unique park.
Meanwhile back at the park, the trees under threat have been putting on a beautiful show…..!   After some gorgeous spring blossoms, the deciduous trees in the two pictures below are now full of summer foliage and providing a leafy haven for the birds….


This 13m high Willow Gum and the three Weeping Elms behind it are looking good – but are they still under threat….?


And what about these lovely slow growing and sculptural Junipers? Are they safe?

Residents will be expecting careful consideration by Council to ensure the new design avoids the unwarranted removal of healthy trees.
