The Mount Barker Council has defended its decision to chop down ancient trees to pave the way for a sporting complex.
 
Four old River Red Gums were felled on Monday 4 November with local resident and Gardening Australia host Sophie Thomson expressing dismay about the move in a viral social media post.

Mayor Ann Ferguson said the community has plenty of time to respond to Regional Sports Hub project plans.

She joins Jennie Lenman to share her position on the issue.
