From National Trust of Australia (Victoria) update: Flemington Road gum tree still standing, but for how long?

Last weekend, community action stopped the works on the Flemington Road gum tree after four hours. Only 40% of the canopy has been removed – the tree is healthy and could still survive and regrow. VicRoads have confirmed that they will not announce when the works will recommence – it could be any time.

A community meeting has been convened by locals at the tree at 7am on Saturday 2 July, Election Day. Please consider attending if you have concerns about the tree’s removal.

The article below links to a new Trust Advocate blog update on what happened last Saturday, what happens next, and some ideas about how you can still show your support for this important tree.

This presentation about the Tony Murphy vs. State of Victoria & Linking Melbourne Authority East West Link Supreme Court Case was developed to identify some of the longer term impacts of the case from a legal perspective, and for the purposes of outlining why this particular litigation had some impact, which is, as you well know primarily because of the will and actions of the community.
