Do you know anything about the poisoning of these paperbark trees?

Kempsey Shire Council is investigating the illegal poisoning of two trees on High Street in Crescent Head.

It has been determined that the trees were deliberately poisoned. As a result, these two trees have unfortunately died and will need to be removed.

This act is not only disappointing but is detrimental to the environment.

It is undetermined if the remaining trees along this section of High Street have been poisoned but Council is closely monitoring their health.

As it is illegal to poison trees for any reason without permission, Council is asking anyone with information about the incident to contact the Development and Compliance team on 6566 3200.
