He believes it is a serious health and safety risk, especially for people who use the domain walkway. “It’s not if, it’s when . . . those 30 trees could fall down today, tomorrow or in five months time,” said Mr Sintes. City council head Tim Sintes of parks Brent Smith said the trees are being monitored. “One fallen tree on the beach of the estuary and five large tree stumps have been removed,” Mr Smith said. “There is a group of eight dead pine and macrocarpa trees near the boundary fence which will be removed due to safety. Treetech will also remove a number of broken branches in close proximity of the main walkway.” The work is expected to be carried out within the next two weeks. However Mr Sintes does not believe that is fast enough. •Turn to page 6 $72 * Bridging the gap between Fashion & Function Trendy range of styles and colours, polarised. * Includes cloth & neck strap with case 256 Barrington Street PH 332 1730 From new builds to small home alterations, we specialise in turning your dream home ideas into reality.
