Two years ago a big gum tree in front of our house, on ACT land, died. We notified the relevant ACT Connect office via the website but only when we wrote again later, about dead branches falling on cars parked underneath it, did they send a crew to cut the all the branches off. The removal of the 10m, massive remaining tree trunk was promised, but never happened, in spite of many messages to ACT Connect.
Can someone suggest a process that will persuade the Department to remove the trunk? It’s such an eyesore and with big chunks of bark falling on cars and the road, it is also a public nuisance.
We would be grateful for suggestions?
