THE “CityNews” phone lines have been running hot with local outrage after four plane trees on West Row were labelled for destruction, as well as other trees near Hobart Place.
It appears they’re being taken down to facilitate the demolition of the Canberra House annexe which will also do away with the Canberra Club and the Wig and Pen pub.
“Removal has been authorised by the ACT Government and a suitable replacement tree will be planted nearby,” the sign reads.
The sign offers further information, but not consultation, for 14 days from May 20.
