GALLERY: Bum Tree cut down

THE once massive Bum Tree has been cut down to ground level.

The controversial council decision to cut down the Bum Tree on Gerroa Road came to a head on Thursday as contractors moved in with chainsaws.

Protesters have held a vigil around the tree, with its unique appendage, for a month.

As contractors moved in Thursday two women tied themselves to the tree. They and one other were removed by police.

A large group of protesters stood by and watched in disgust as the limbs fell.

A number of possums were caught in cloth bags and taken away.
