BAYSWATER council has decided to leave the massive beehive in Robert Thomson Park untouched.

The council decided at its meeting last Tuesday to follow the advice of acting technical services chief George Rimpas and not get rid of the hive in one of the park’s sick trees (“Hive save,” Voice, March 26, 2016).

According to Mr Rimpas, the hive is located too high up to become a nuisance to residents and since no complaints had been received the council deemed removal unnecessary.

The council also decided to save three of the sick trees from the axe. They will be fenced off and annual inspections carried out to avoid park users being clobbered by falling limbs.

A marri tree with canker disease will be removed and replaced with four trees.
