Update: Pictures of cut down trees

Thanks to a concerned cyclist we have pictures of the trees cut down yesterday. Several people confirmed that the tree cutters were from Salta, and the off cut wood is on the Salta site.

Although the trees weren’t native, they provided shade and habitat for birds and possums. When a tree where a possum lives is cut down the possum has to find a new territory. They need to fight, and the loser often dies due to injuries, exposure or starvation.

Can anyone just decide to cut down a tree on public land? Isn’t that illegal? If any ordinary citizen did this we’d be prosecuted quickly.
