Over the weekend, parts of Sydney experienced extreme weather. The impact has been felt in Hunters Hill, with power outages and the loss of many trees.

Council Works team have worked around the clock to clear fallen trees, branches and debris from council and public places.

  • A tree had fallen on Gladesville Road near Mary Street roundabout, council’s works teams worked through the night to remove it.
  • At Harding Memorial, on Hillcrest Avenue a tree is down. It has failed due to west soil; our team hopes to remove some time tomorrow.
  • Additionally, there is a tree down on the corner of Crown Street and Victoria Road which will be removed this week.

The remaining trees that are down belong to residents. Council is not able to remove debris from private property, or recommend contractors but would urge residents if you need specialist advice or an Arborist Report on the health of your tree, or to remove trees, you will need to engage a Consulting Arborist with AQF Level 3 or equivalent in Horticulture (Arboriculture).

If the tree is on council property please report online.
