I just picked up from ABC Radio the following:
When a tree is closer to a building than its own height,
then this tree can or should be removed! No permission
needed for removal of such a tall tree!
This indeed does make a lot of sense to me.
I love all trees very, very much.
However, my common sense tells
me, that trees that tend to grow
extremely high, should not be planted
too close to any building! 🙂
I do not know whether there
exist any exceptions to this rule – !
I live in Australia. Maybe in some other
countries very tall trees do not cause
all these problems they are likely to
cause in Australia.
