Suburban land clearing

By georgeb 10 June 2009 22

Whilst ACT Parks and Lands are contemplating widespread tree clearing throughout Canberra, they appear to be having some practice by removing native shrubs from the streetscape in Kaleen. They did it last year in Baldwin Drive, and now they have moved on to Maribyrnong Avenue, where someone with a spray can of blue paint is marking many perfectly healthy shrubs for removal.

If what happened last year is any indication, then once the contractors’ chainsaws and mulchers have come and done their work, no replacements will be planted. Not one.

Who benefits from this, other than the graffiti artists who will immediately move in on motley collection of fences that we now get to look at?

Is this happening elsewhere in Canberra as well?

Yeah this tree removal stuff is very annoying for alot of residents, i agree i would be quiet upset if this was happening in my suburb. As far as i am aware they have a tree replacement program going. Hopefully they will replace these areas.
