Chain­saw chump

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

WHO is the ma­ni­a­cal chain­saw user who has mas­sa­cred the fallen palms at the south­ern end of Four Mile Beach?

It was an un­in­tel­li­gent and un­nec­es­sary thing to do.

The fallen trees formed a pro­tec­tive groin as a buf­fer to fur­ther ero­sion and they were still part of the nat­u­rally beau­ti­ful land­scape, up­right or other­wise.

Sub­ur­ban tidi­ness be­longs to the colonised hin­ter­land.

The coast has looked af­ter it­self for many mil­len­nia be­fore our ar­rival so for the in­stant we are on the planet, leave it alone.

Take the chain­saw to Tully where it is needed or throw it away and take an art class and learn to see.
