Tree vandalism

Posted on Friday 20 January 2023

Council is asking residents to report any relevant information following the installation of two new tree banners and replacement of two others following acts of tree vandalism.

Banners were replaced in Bay Street, while new banners were installed in bushland in Spit West after it was found during an inspection last year that a chemical had been added to the ground at the base of several semi-mature Eucalypts and Casuarinas which were showing signs of poisoning. Several instances of tree vandalism had previously occurred in the area with the tops of several other semi-mature trees lopped.

Two other banners, in Mosman Street and Stan McCabe Park, Bay Street, have been removed after the native vegetation was successfully remediated and no further instances of vandalism occurred.
