This is another case of Council doing what it likes, then trying to explain their actions. In this case the trees were ripped out without any notice or concern. The trees had originally been planted as a memorial to Australian servicemen who fell at Anzac Cove in Gallipoli, and I believe were sourced from trees found at Gallipoli. Ripped em down didn't give a damn, then rushed off to where they had been dumped and in theory gathered some seeds from them and planted this paltry "Grove" Which I hope has some meaning for those who lost pople at that conflict. To me however it is just another symbol of how government has no regard for the people who pay their wages. Now Brisbane is going to install another 5,000 parking meters and they are trying to tell us it isn't revenue raising. I wish that they would take some of the manure they are sprouting and put it under the trees - maybe the trees can swallow it - I don't!
