2/9/14: These residents are distressed about the extent of vegetation removal that has already happened along the Walkerville and Bald Hills Roads and the massive amount of trees to be removed along the Tarwin Lower-Inverloch Road.
Over 600 gum trees of all sizes, including some very ancient ones, are to be removed from the Tarwin Lower Inverloch Road. More than 200 gums are going to be chopped down along the road next to the cemetery. All other important vegetation ranging from substantial patches of Sweet Bursaria, Cherry Ballart and Blackwood wattle, to understory shrubs, wildflowers and orchids are under threat because of this poorly conceived transmission line route.
Vegetation removed for poles on Tarwin –Waratah Road
All eucalypts were to be removed between the cemetery and the substation.The community then mounted a daily onsite protest at the Tarwin Lower Cemetery to save the understorey vegetation from the bulldozers, signs and banners were attached to trees.
