Brown Mt giant felled by fire contractors

What’s this called Ryan Smith? Brown Mt giant felled by fire contractors

A bulldozer driver paid to carry out restoration work (at least $200 an hour we hear) goes 40m inside Nat Park boundary @ Brown Mountain - fells old growth tree opposite the EEG “Valley of the Giants” walk track.

Can this be regarded as ‘fire safety’? Or could it be interpreted as delayed revenge for the successful court case that stopped the site being clerafelled in 2010?
