THIRTEEN weeping willow trees lining Crouch Street South will be removed next week to the dismay of prominent Mount Gambier surgeon Barney McCusker.

Of the 13 trees, 10 are causing severe damage to the kerb and watertable and impacting the flow of storm water, while eight of the trees are continually lopped by SA Power Networks to meet requirements for power line clearance.

Mount Gambier City Council approved the removal of the trees
