Trees cause dam­age

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - FEEDBACK -

RE: “Out­rage over tree re­moval,” ( Mt Druitt-St Marys Stan­dard, Novem­ber 11).

The trees are not the only good thing about Queen St.

There is an abun­dance of award­win­ning busi­nesses lo­cated on Queen St.

The trees (how­ever nice they may look) cause shop own­ers a lot of has­sle get­ting their gut­ters un­blocked due to the fallen leaves.

I have also wit­nessed sev­eral pedes­tri­ans fall on the un­even pavers sur­round­ing the over­grown tree bases, some caus­ing se­ri­ous dam­age to el­derly cit­i­zens where am­bu­lances had to be called.

There is a full streetscape plan which out­lines all the changes. This can be viewed on Pen­rith Coun­cil’s web­site.

This up­grade is great in my books.
