Save the trees on Lawson Street, Redfern

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!


In 2015 plans were made to remove trees from the footpath in Lawson Street, Redfern, to make way for human traffic from the train station. Since that time there has been extensive planning and the human traffic will be diverted to Little Eveleigh Street. There is no longer a good reason to remove these trees. 

These trees are home to wildlife including birds and possums. The residents of the street are overwhelmingly in support of keeping them. 

To our knowledge, they have not done a wildlife study and also have not consulted with residents or traditional owners. 

We object to their removal. Let’s keep these beautiful paperbarks where they are.
