One must beg the question why Tweed Shire Council and the land conservation movement would be so up in arms over a couple of branches being cut from a tuckeroo tree at Cudgen Creek , South Kingscliff, when we have the wholesale destruction of the vegetation at the caravan site at North Kingscliff.
The site has been systematically destroyed over the last 15 to 20 years. To cap it off the earth-movers were contracted recently to flatten the site.
A look to the northern boundary and further will show you what a beautiful section of nature has been replaced with artificial grass and cabins (which are a beauty to behold ).
Tweed Shire Council should read their two signs that are half a kilometre to the south, which warn residents that TSC will not tolerate the destruction of trees in the dunal area.
Tweed Shire Council hang your heads in shame.
