A Bowen resident is calling on council to remove roadside trees, saying current foliage outside his Algona Crescent home is close to powerlines and roots are causing damage to streets, but council says they will stay.
Resident Tony Briggs said a tree had come down over the road from his home in Algona Crescent, and after council workers came to clear it up he said they told him the trees over the road - outside his property and under powerlines - were dangerous.
Mr Briggs said a week later they still hadn't been to trim the trees or made contact.
"They said it was dangerous and I've been saying for a while they're dangerous," he said.
"I've been here 13 years and they haven't done anything about the trees."
He said garbage trucks scraped past the low-hanging branches which also made it hard to walk along the street.
Orange City Council communications officer Allan Reeder said council had removed the tree the branch had fallen off, but determined other nearby trees were "healthy and stable".
