Devastating news as further tree vandalism discovered in Towradgi – Wollongong

We’re saddened to share the devastating news that the remaining Norfolk Island Pine Trees in Towradgi Park have been destroyed in a deliberate act of tree vandalism.

Today, Council staff discovered that at least 10 of the pine trees along the stretch of cycleway between Corrimal Surf Club and the Towradgi playground had been poisoned. Each tree had been drilled into and filled with poison.

We’ve assessed the trees and found that it is unlikely the trees will survive however we will monitor their health over the coming weeks. This incident follows a similar tree vandalism which saw two other Norfolk Pine Trees destroyed at the same location, last week.
