Street trees

We've become accustomed in our area for the street trees to be pruned well clear of the power lines (after all, we don't want any bushfires to intrude on our urban peace), but lately there must have been a decree that branches are not to intrude over the roadway.   So even trees on the other side of the street to the power lines have come in for some savage treatment, resulting in some lop-sided results.

No power line in sight!


  1. Has there ever been a bushfire in Stonington in the last 150 years?

    1. My admittedly cryptic comment derives from my understanding that the trees are being pruned so as to be further away from the power lines than previously in order to comply with new regulations introduced following the bushfires a few years back.
