Another Monterey pine has died and will be removed. There has been some debate on Facebook about these trees, especially after the recent case of a tree falling into a preschool. While safety is paramount, people still want a distinctive landmark on the skyline.
“…if these trees are in danger of also falling onto the school grounds and possibly injuring children, then they must be removed. But I do feel that they need to be replaced, not just removed.” Hayley
“They’re the only BHB landmark that can be seen from outside the suburb and I've grown up seeing them as I come towards my home suburb.” Bryan
“Gosh I remember playing hide and seek while at Primary around these trees. Mr Davies [used] to tell us off.” Phill
