Doesn’t’ it all happen down here, on the day after Boxing Day?
Trees were damaged at the kids playground on Katherine Circuit.
A large lump was taken from large and not so healthy tree trunk, obvious hazard for children.
Branches were torn from tree at the kerb side but the bigger concern was where two trees were planted a couple of years ago, and had grown to two metres or so but were broken off leaving just skinny stumps.
As we plan for growth, packing more and more escapees from the city into a confined space, must we expect more problems?
Even when this is done with lab rats, they get alienated, even vicious. Is it time to tell our leaders that obsession with uncontrolled growth is a problem, for which there’s no solution?
