DAM­AGE AT ROOT OF RE­MOVAL

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

CLARE­MONT Coun­cil voted to axe a 50-year-old fi­cus tree last week. Coun­cil­lors unan­i­mously sup­ported cut­ting down the tree on the cor­ner of Os­borne Pa­rade and Stir­ling High­way be­cause of dam­age caused by its root sys­tem. The Town al­lo­cated $3600 to re­move and re­place the 13m tree. “I hate to see a tree taken out, it is a very sad thing,” Cr Karen Wood said. “The dam­age the roots do is very nasty and it costs the Town a lot of money.”
