Saving trees transcends political boundaries. Thanks to Matt Thistlethwaite for organising an outstanding rally today to call on the prime minister to make a statement about saving the Anzac Parade figs in his electorate. Bruce Notely-Smith’s office said that he would have liked to attend, but unfortunately had prior commitments.

There are anotherĀ 637 trees to be removed for the project, and 86 around Anzac Parade and Moore Park alone. There are a further 710 trees to be “pruned” (may be removed on the day – on arborists decision)

You can count them for yourself on the official government maps which you can download by clicking on the following link: Tree Destruction Maps

More disturbing is the extra number of figs to be removed for the Anzac Parade diversion. You can find out more information here:
