Tree Strategy is setting a standard
At our recent ward briefing staff discussed the implementation of the endorsed Tree Strategy. They were able to identify the number of street trees that are proposed for removal over the next 5 years as well as the replacement program. It plants more that it removes. These trees are mostly dead or dying and in poor health. Staff were able to identify places for 30 new trees in Black Forest alone for this financial year.
Streetscape renewals for 2017/18 include Laught Ave and Ripon Rd, for 2018/19 includeEglington Ave. This was a well thought out plan and seems to be working. The full strategy can be read here.
