Australia — Ann Belcher lives in the area and collected 72 signatures urging the clearing of the pines to prevent bushfires.
Some pines will be removed to create a buffer zone between the plantation and new housing blocks in the suburbs.
However, Ms Belcher says that is not enough and wants all of the trees cleared.
“Those pines are still there and even a buffer zone will not protect everybody and there are so many schools there now and so many people around it and pine plantations are not appropriate in an urban area,” she said.
“They might have been appropriate as a buffer years ago when no people were living out here to the extent they are now.”
