Email the council 'if a tree is removed', says tree group

The Grow Urban Shade Trees group has asked residents to email Central Coast Council and ask them to plant more trees "if you see a tree removed, or a spot that could use some shade".

"They do listen.It just takes time and effort to get the message across," said group member Ms Jenny Wilder.

She said: "A beautiful ficus was stolen from behind the sign at the Umina Park entry a couple of years ago."

A two year old robusta disappeared last month just metres away.

"Several mature trees around the park have been removed, presumably sickly due to several years of tough conditions.

"A robusta near the Umina SLSC struggles to survive while its two neighbours are long gone."

She said it was important to remember that these trees were not growing in their natural environment.

"They're trees in urban places where we humans get to enjoy them regularly. But they are vulnerable.

"Trees take years to deliver shade, and even after years or even decades of growth they can be gone in the blink of an eye.

"They're not self-propagating, so we need to keep planning and planting to keep our local area green.

"Our goal is more shade, beauty and habitat."
