Perth man living in a eucalyptus tree to prevent it being chopped down.
This guy is a moron. I hope a branch breaks free and lands on his head, just to prove a point. Nice tree to look at, but an insurance nightmare. They always drop branches and cause damage, either via storm or old age.




A Perth man has been living in a eucalyptus tree in his front yard for the past three days in an effort to stop the giant tree being cut down by the local council.

Thornlie resident Richard Pennicuik said he felt like he had no choice but to protest against a decision by the City of Gosnells to remove more than 20 native trees from his street over the next week. He said he would not be leaving until the tree was saved.

City of Gosnells chief executive Ian Cowie said council would be removing the tree and hoped to come to an “amicable” resolution with Mr Pennicuik.

But he said the city would not try to remove him from his tree.

The tree removal program follows a city survey last year which identified 22 potentially dangerous trees in Hume Road, mainly because of falling branches.

The natives will be replaced by 35 jacarandas. Further along Mr Pennicuik’s street, workers have been busy removing the remaining tall eucalypts.

Mr Pennicuik had been living uncomfortably in the tree since early Monday morning and had struggled to sleep throughout his protest. Neighbours and friends have been supporting him, bringing food, water and other items

“I feel as I’ve been backed into this situation. All I want is this tree,” Mr Pennicuik said.

“I don’t mind if other people want their trees cut down,” Mr Pennicuik said. “But I won’t back down.”

Mr Cowie said the city would try to reason with Mr Pennicuik over the next few days but would not force him from the tree or endanger his safety.

“Inappropriate trees were planted 40 years ago, trees which are beautiful in the Australian bush which are beautiful in parkland but aren’t suited for an urban environment and the city can’t live with the risk,” he said.

Not his property, the roadside verges belong to the local council.

hmmm...I'm ususally on the tree-huggers side, but if this tree was planted "inappropriatly" and is now posing a hazard, bring on the chainsaw.

Chop it down. We have to do the same in our front yard. Eucalyptus trees are dangerous in the hood.

Awww, I dunno, the council probably planted them in the first place, and surely one eucalypt wouldn't be so hazardous..I saw him on the tv news, with the bucket he hoists up and down the tree, his toilet.
He looks very tired, damn, he must love that tree..

Ok, now I'm interested. Going to Google it now.

In the North Pacific of North America, usually the 'tree people' are inhabiting trees in the forest, not in the city, so I'm not sure what to think.

Goofballs
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!

Well, the article was the same. In the picture, however, the tree didn't look overly dangerous. However, I'm no eucalyptus tree expert.

It will only take time, for a good storm to crash the tree on his house.

Eucalyptus trees are pretty, but hopeless in storms. Hopeless.

The blame lies with insurance claims, in a town on the east coast, a whole lot of coconut palms were chopped down because one might fall on someone's head.
