(Question No 145)
Mrs Dunne asked the Minister for the Environment, Climate Change and Water, upon notice, on 31 March 2009 (redirected to the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services):
In relation to the Conservator of Flora and Fauna as mentioned in the Department of Territory and Municipal Services annual report for 2007-08, how many of the 943 applications for Tree Damaging Activities resulted in the death of a protected tree.
Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
During the financial year 2007 – 2008, the Tree Protection Unit within the Department of Territory and Municipal Services received and made decisions on a total of 1,888 applications to undertake tree damaging activities.
Of the 1,888 applications, 943 were approved. Some of those approvals may in fact involve multiple trees. An approval to undertake a tree damaging activity does not mandate the damage or death of a particular tree and consequently there are no statistics that can accurately identify how many of the 943 approved applications resulted in the death of a protected tree.
