The before shots are from Google Street View.

Amazing how quickly the stumps were ground. Funding, according to some ‘manager’ from NCC, for stump grinding in Laman Street didn’t exist.

Not amazing that the choice of replacement tree is the magnolia. Magnolias or tuckeroos – that’s the choice usually.

Wonder if NCC letter-boxed the neighbourhood and asked the residents what they thought  told the residents what’s good for them.

I’m guessing new footpaths are the reason the trees were sacrificed. Home
