THE loss of the decades-old trees at Lathlain Place continues to draw comment online. Satellite imagery suggests the two eucalypts were planted in the 1970s and not indigenous to the area. One of these had a history of limb drop, which does not satisfy the Town’s safety requirements. The health of the other tree was deteriorating and its long-term survival was in question. They are being replaced with six jacarandas and an additional nine jacarandas along the verges, selected for their known hardiness, canopy denseness, appropriateness for pedestrian areas, and watering requirements. - Warren Bow, Town of

- Roscoe Removing eucalyptus trees, which supported the area’s native birds and wildlife, for jacaranda? - Tannon After cutting down two beautiful trees it’s clear the Town doesn’t care about their/our trees much.
