Send us your pictures and we can update our website with local tree kills and keep the Community informed. This is occurring all over the Sunshine Coast and similar tree kills are being reported in other parts of Queensland and Interstate in Bushland Rehabilitation Areas. We want to help stop this mess!
The common denominator in all these tree kills is the use of ’Agricultural Chemical Products against the Manufactures Instructions and mixing up random super noxious Unregistered concoctions such as Gloricide without a valid Permit or Parliamentary Approval. This is not a good idea when working on free draining coastal sandy soils and perched freshwater swales full of Internationally Threatened Species. It is the worst possible combination of factors and that’s what’s killing all the trees and contaminating all the Workers and effected Community Members!
Seaview Creek – Sunshine Beach, Queensland
I was up at Sunshine Beach the other day and was amazed at the destruction of Seaview Creek and the high dunes adjacent to it. Million dollar beach house on top of dunes that have completely stripped of vegetation and poisoned. Thousands of dollars worth of ‘Copper Chrome Arsnic’ timber retaining has been installed to try and hold the dunes together. All the dead trees have been cut to be used as other temporary reinforcement to protect the footings of these homes. SCRC and their Contractors have been poisonoing this area for years and community volunteers work here. The area has only deteriorated under the management of the SCRC. The costs left for Noosa Residents from SCRC is tremendous. Many Workers and Communities Members have been illegally exposed to poisonous synthetic hormonal Chemical Products and massive amounts of money has been spent illegally.
Stumers Creek – Coolum, Queensland
Stumers Creek at Coolum is another major disaster Zone. Whole areas of the creek line have been sprayed and are dead. The banks are already falling into the creek. The Dunes to the north of the Creek have been slowly retreating for many years and thousands of native trees have been poisoned here and still are. You would have to be a complete idiot to keep spraying these chemicals knowing that they have been killing all the banksias through here over the last 5 years. It would of been better if SCRC didn’t spend the money at all on this work and reimbursed the community! They have cost the community dearly by this recklessness! http://www.atpenvironmental.com.au/?attachment_id=133 Marcus Beach is another disaster Zone, some areas of the dunes are reverting back to sand blows due to the total annihilation of the vegetation and the soil flora. Revegetation is being used on mass because SCRC has killed the rest of the vegetation and needs to do something before houses start falling off sand dunes. Revegetation is a massive expense to repair vegetation that was damaged by Unregistered Chemical Products and other Chemical Products not registered for use in these areas http://www.atpenvironmental.com.au/?attachment_id=416.
More Photos will be loaded soon, see blog for further information!!
Please document the destruction at your beach. The only way to be heard amongst the grinding wheels of corruption is to shout all together and document the evidence for later! Class actions are imminent!!
