CALLS have been made to the Suva City Council (SCC) special administrator Chandu Umaria to hold open public consultations on his move to cut down historical trees in the city.

An environment activist Patricia Mallam voiced her disappointment saying that Mr Umaria needed to seek the ideas of forestry experts, other stakeholders including historians, cultural heritage and youth groups to make their submissions on whether this was the best possible option for the city of Suva.
