CAN you imagine Tahiti or Fiji or Hawaii or any other tropical holiday destination without coconut trees?
Swaying palm trees on a walk on the palm fringed beach is one of the things tourists enjoy on their tropical holiday destination.
To start cutting down the palm trees in the Whitsunday region to save a few dollars in maintenance is absolute stupidity.
I am not a “greenie” but to obliterate the tropical atmosphere by removing the palm trees is sheer madness.
What next from Mayor Whitney? Please lobby your councillors to stop this tragedy from happening.
