Flemington Road gum tree still standing, but for how long?
Please meet 7am, Saturday 2nd July at 120 Flemington Road, Parkville (if not way before), bring food, a cuppa before you head off to vote.
Posters and flyers you can print/distribute to show support for the Lemon-Scented Gum campaign
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.
