A falling tree has been removed from a busy pub carpark in Moruya today.
Eurobodalla Council’s arborist assessed the 20-year-old fig as requiring immediate removal after diligent neighbours reported the damaged tree this morning.
The tree’s roots appear to have been deliberately tampered with.
Council will plant a suitable replacement at the same location.
The damaged tree was near a busy pedestrian area and the road, meaning immediate removal was required.
Bottle brush trees in same garden are not at risk of falling, and other trees in the car park are deemed safe.
