The 7000th tree – a very large white mulberry tree – was recently removed from Ann Grivec’s property

Free tree removal helping after years of disappointment
Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area’s free tree removal program has been successful in helping residents who have struggled to manage their trees for Queensland fruit fly (QFF).
Kathy O’Donnell planted a Nectarine tree five years ago with the vision of one day walking out her backdoor, picking and enjoying her own beautiful Nectarines. However after years of not one piece of edible fruit, Kathy’s disappointed had turned into incredibly frustrated and the free tree removal program was just want she needed.
