Tree vandals at Sandridge Beach.

Actions such as snapping of dominant branches and ring barking trees have been used.
Some trees have been marked with paint in an attempt to have contractors believe they are to be removed.
No healthy trees are to be removed as part of the upgrade to the Sandridge foreshore. Contractors will only remove vegetation at Council's arborist's direction. No healthy trees have been removed due to false markings.
An observer noted: 'this is what people are prepared to do to feed their addiction to a view'.
