RE: “Tree fells fire sta­tion,” ( Mt Druitt-St Marys Stan­dard, June 10).

All the trees have dis­ap­peared, be­cause of these new sub-di­vi­sions. Yet when my ex-part­ner and I built our first home, on acreage 20 years ago, we could only take out the trees where the house was go­ing to be built.

Some of these coun­cils over­charge just to re­move a tree. We had a tree also on the foot­path of our prop­erty and the coun­cil wanted over $3000 to pull the tree out.

We ended up leav­ing the tree there. No one used the foot­path but us and there was no road to walk on where I used to live.
