Hi, We owned a property within blacktown council. there are 4 palm trees (about 5 meters high) on the side of the driveaway. Since we don't have a garage (converted to a bedroom), we park the car on the driveaway and the large dead leaves (they are quite heavy and hard) drop onto it as well as neighbour's roof. Also we have 2 young kids (1 yr old and 3 yrds old) running around. I am concerned they may get badly hurt should any leave drops onto them. Im thinking about removing them altogether. I pretty much have to clean the dropped leaves every week. There is another one palm tree sitting pretty much next to the house (less than 1 meter) and I am concerned it will affect the building foundation. Any experience in getting the approval? Or suggestion in terms of reasoning for this? Thank you all.
