Council’s Qualified Arborists inspect our trees in accordance with the Tree Management Plan which can be found on Council’s website.
When works are identified during these inspections, these are scheduled to be completed by qualified Council staff or contractors depending on the nature of the work.
When a tree removal is deemed necessary, it is usually appropriate to replace the tree with a similar species.
This is however not always the case and a more suitable species may be planted or the area left vacant.
The tree in question was scheduled to have works completed in the near future however the prevailing wind conditions yesterday resulted in the limb failure prior to these works being conducted.
