The Guildford Progress Association has received news that their concerns about the proposed work on The Big Tree have been heeded. The following is an excerpt from a recent letter to the Association from the Shire:
Due to the continued concerns of the Guildford Progress Association regarding the arboricultural works proposed by Council on “The Big Tree”, I wish to inform you that these works have been postponed.
Council has commissioned an independent arboricultural assessment of the tree. The consultant will provide Council with a report and any recommended works. I will ensure that the Guildford Progress Association is kept informed of any intended works on or at the site of “The Big Tree”.
We will keep you informed about any further developments on this issue.
