York Street Tree
A call from council to update our reporting of this. Council investigated, sent a council arborist to tend to the tree.
It appears the person who damaged the tree said it was accidental and was a contractor (not the developer), so council have invoiced them for the work of the council arborist and costs. No fine! However council did say they are working hard to educate developers about protecting public trees and property.
Its hard to be be jaded by this no fine situation. Developers don’t appear to learn until it hits their wallets! Stay vigilant folks.
And remember to let developers know you know, you know!
