"Leggy" belongs on the catwalk, not the sidewalk

Calliington Ave, City Beach

I talked about this problem in an earlier post but it warrants repeating because I'm seeing it everywhere.

Councils buy whippy trees like this so that they're "of a size" when they go in the ground.

Bad idea.

Because look what happens...

Callington Ave, City Beach


You might get away with "leggy" with some species, but definitely not with Eucalypts. It always ends in tears.

This is just throwing ratepayers' money away.

(Hey, hang on - in this case that's MY money!)
