Maclean trees still safe, seats removed for painting

THE REMOVAL of seats from Maclean's McLachlan Park is not a sign the camphor laurel trees in the park are about to come down.

Clarence Valley Council has removed the seats for painting and they are scheduled to be back in place this afternoon.

Despite community protests, the council has voted to remove the trees, but there has been no indication when this will happen.
