Chopping down pine trees – near arboretum

AG Canberra 11 September 2008 62

Anyone know why for the past couple of days a mechanical chopper has been working its way through the first few rows of 3 or 4 year old pine trees near the arboretum (adjacent to the Parkway)?

They are being left in neat rows (not unlike the ones set up after the bushfires to get rid of all the material left over) but are in no way ready to be used for timber production.

Buffer zone for bushfire season?
Lots of xmas in September parties?
Cutting down trees to make way for planting more trees?

If the trees did have to go – surely they could have waited another couple of months and let us go and grab one each for Christmas?

Yeah, but we’d have enough time to party hard before it happened…
