Link for tree strategy

Having lived in Glen Waverley for 30+ years I absolutely love the leafy streets. They encourage owls, possums and other native fauna plus providing lovely shade and aesthetics not to mention their use in producing much needed oxygen for all of the extra Monash residents that call this part of the world home. In Glen Tower Drive, 85% of the trees that line the nature strips will be felled by the council. This is part of the council's "tree strategy". It is nothing short of disgraceful. It is costing $250,000 - your rates at work. The council will be replacing the trees with 1 particular variety of native tree in a 30cm pot (seedlings). Three (3) streets in the city of Monash are having their trees obliterated. Why?? What for? The trees are safe, they are a beautiful mix of native and European trees and they add value that I don't think you can put a price on.
Every resident needs to know this. The mindless decisions of a few Councillors ( remember we elected them to represent us) will change the entire landscape for the worse. Please share with everyone you know and help us fight the council on this one. It is not OK to cut down trees that are 50+ years old.
