Residents have been surprised to learn that mature, historic and iconic trees (London plane trees and jacarandas) which are on the heritage listing are proposed to be removed from to cope with the higher density developments.
This excerpt is from the ground floor plan for the development at 20-22 Kintail Road and shows the proposed road widening in relation to the existing trees.
The avenue of London Plane Trees on Kintail Road provides a magnificent entry statement into Applecross. They have been there for over fifty years but now the Council wants them removed.
Please retain Applecross’s character and amenity, help save these trees.
