Trees removed from the dog track

Established and newly-planted trees have been removed from the dog track on the Araluen Dr extension at Pretty Beach

Central Coast Council provided the new plants to the bushcare group to rehabilitate the council land where the trees were killed.

The shrubs and trees were planted on the site where a group of casuarina trees and mangroves were poisoned last year and had died.

The council has previously put up a sign saying the area was targeted by vandals.

Some time between Friday June 14 and Saturday June 15 this latest act of vandalism occurred with all the established and newly planted trees and shrubs removed.

Fifty native tube stock plants were removed at the start of the dog track track, infuriating the volunteers from the Pretty Beach Bushcare group who planted them in April.

"The tube stock was planted by the Pretty Beach Bushcare, with the aim of improving the environment for everybody to enjoy and improve habitat for the native wildlife,'' said convenor Ms Toni Trent.

"As community members living in a beautiful and special environment, we must fight to stop the destruction of native plants."

Ms Trent said group members suspected the damage was done by someone who did not want their views interrupted.

"It just shows a complete lack of respect for the bush,'' Ms Trent said.

"If you have any information about any of the damage that has occurred, please contact Council's Ranger Services on 1300 463 954."

She said anyone interested in joining the Bushcare group could contact her on 0401 587 988 and that new members were "very welcome".
