Wollongong City Council is calling for residents to share any information they may have about a recent tree vandalism incident in Towradgi.

On Monday 11 September, Council staff discovered three Norfolk Island Trees that once stood between the Towradgi Surf Club and rock pool had been cut down.

Wollongong City Lord Mayor Councillor Gordon Bradbery AM said that this was a selfish and brazen act of destruction of community property.

“We’re deeply disappointed to have to share this news with our community who we know love and value trees in public spaces,’’ Cr Bradbery said.

“We’re calling on anyone who knows anything about this latest incident to contact Council. Despite what people may assume, we don’t always have CCTV footage in natural spaces, so we do rely on residents who live nearby to share information with Council or the Police.”
