Yesterday the residents of my strata block received by
mail notice of the removal of a large Eucalyptus bicostata.
This activity is to start in 5 days time, Wednesday
A copy of the conservators decision was circulated but no
conditions were attached despite a line in bold capitals along the bottom of the
page stating “Read Condition(s) Carefully”.
Since 1998 I have watch a pair of Australian Ravens
successfully nesting at the top of this tree and I suspect they are starting
their 2013 nesting cycle now.
Does anyone know if the tree conservator usually, or ever,
puts restrictions on removals to the effect that if birds are nesting removal
must be delayed until the young are independent?
This tree is used by many other birds of course including
up to 6 or 7 pairs of Gang Gangs when they are in Torrens which has happened
more frequently over the past 4 or 5 years.
Any advice on this subject would be greatly
