    I wish to make a complaint about the felling of trees in an area of ground situated in Coosan Athlone adjacent to N37C1W8. The area is just within the urban area in Athlone but the area of ground is over .1 hectare for which the exemption applies.
    I ask that this is investigated and that the owners are instructed to re plant the site immediately.

      Hi Senator Carrigy, you need to report to with the subject of Alleged Illegal Felling + County. This is a blog that simply posts environmental data, we are not a reporting channel for illegal felling. Regards
