1675 Trees destroyed or threatened

The 2017 EIS for Stage 3 of Westconnex identified a threat to 1675 Trees
in the vicinity of the Rozelle Railyards which includes Buruwan Park and
other pockets along White's Creek.

Of the 1675, 107 were identified as high value.

The focus for Biodiversity Impact was the Railyards. Many of the trees
were in the Rozelle Railyards have already been cleared. No threatened
flora and fauna will be removed. There were microbats in the railyards.

No detailed tree or wildlife survey has been done of Buruwan Park or the
areas outside the railyards where vegetation will be destroyed.

355 Trees are to be investigated further for suitablility for retention
including 34 high value trees. This includes "screening" trees at the
intersection of Lilyfield Road and Victoria Road.

For most of the Trees westconnex will get away with replacement planting
in shrinking crowded Green Space, which can't accommodate large trees.
