Sydney. We have a couple of very large Jacaranda trees in the front of our property. One of them overhangs our front tiled path. For the 6 weeks that the tree is in flower, the path is littered with flowers to the extent that if they are left they become a slip hazard. The tree also drops leaves for a month or so before it flowers. An owner sweeps the path every couple of days during these months. They would like to be relieved of this duty, but realises that this would mean leaving a slip hazard. The SC has recently rejected lopping the tree.
What is the OC’s responsibility in this instance?
If there were to be a slip and somebody broke a hip, say, what liability rests with the SC or OC?
Since there are so many Jacarandas around, this issue must have been raised in the past.
