The Guildford Progress Association has written a considered letter to the Mount Alexander Shire to express concern over plans to prune the tree in the interests of its long term health [see our Post]. It essentially argues that the proposed pruning is unnecessary and potentially damaging to the tree. The Association’s letter can be found at this link. The letter is worth reading for the detailed case it makes for leaving the tree as it is, naturally altered by the cyclone of early this year; and it asks that the Council supply a credible arborist assessment before any work is done on the tree.
