A STRIKING symbol of the need to preserve the environmental values of Lake Weyba is now being used as a stark sign of foreshore neglect.

The Friends of Lake Weyba have posted a before and after photograph of the “much-loved Sentinel Tree” which juts on to the water.

The first was taken around 2010 and the visually diminished follow-up last year.

FoLW describe this as “a fine example of the results of a lack of foreshore management of fragile vegetation”.

The Sunshine Coast Council is now assessing the public submissions to its Lake Weyba foreshore management which closed on March 23.
