Wingecarribee Council has assured residents of Wingello that 30 liquid amber trees planted at the entrance to the shire's southern village will not be removed.

The trees were planted along the road reserve as part of the Wingello beautification village improvements program.

A small group of residents petitioned council calling for the liquid ambers to be removed and replaced with native species.

However, the majority of residents want to see the trees retained and the matter was raised at the last council meeting.
