You can match up the tree numbers below with the tree numbers on the maps, to find out the Anzac Memorial Trees On Anzac Parade, Moore Park that are to be killed, removed, or canopy and/or root pruned:

 

Any tree can be killed on the day at the discretion of the Arborist.

The Government and Centennial and Moore Park Trust has never come out and told Australians the full extent of the tree destruction. They are still refusing to say when they are removing and pruning trees and to what extent. When trees were pruned on the Cahill Expressway in 2003, they all died. (See Picture)

You can see the previous much clearer lopping and killing information from the previous government maps by Urban Tree Management.click here.14.Moore Park_Anzac Parade_Tramway Oval_plan_14

You can see the new maps at this link, including the scheduled tree removal schedule which they can update at any time. click here Screen Shot 2016-05-18 at 20.51.58

New misleading maps – no longer showing any trees to be lopped, crown, canopy or root pruned.

Already trees to be retained, or transplanted or just pruned, have been killed, destroyed and woodchipped. Because this project is State Significant Critical Infrastructure, the Transport for NSW or ALTRAC  can change the status and destroy a tree at any time.
