Planned Council works

Removal of trees is seen as the last option – Council will always look for other management option first. Unfortunately in some cases and due to risk to public and property, removal may be the only option. Council aims to increase our urban canopy and so, where possible, it will always replace the tree with a selected from the Street Tree Master Plan. Any tree that is identified for removal will also have a notice affixed to the tree.
