Our hearts go out to everyone involved in this tragic incident that occurred on Saturday night on a private property at Amanda Drive, Surrey Downs. 

After initial investigations yesterday and this morning, Council found no records of any development application being submitted to Council to remove the tree. However, the tree was well maintained and checked regularly by a private arborist. It is our understanding that the incident is considered an act of nature. 

We will fully cooperate with any investigation regarding the fallen tree branch.

If residents are concerned with any particular tree in their street, we encourage them to contact us. This includes concerns about trees on private property, as was the case with this incident.
