Significant tree fails
This once magnificent tree is on the corner of Wood Street and Northgate St. Sometime ago when the tree was looking poorly there was remedial action taken to save the trees life and it seemed to have survived and flourished. Unfortunately, on the 25th October the tree dropped the limb shown in the right hand picture. After assessment by an arborist it was decided to remove the large limb that overhung Northgate St. The result is shown in the picture. It should be noted that Council is doing all it can to save the tree (it pre-dates European settlement), to make it safe and to enable it to flourish once again.
