The Centennial Parklands’ Arboriculture team will undertake tree works at Moore Park Golf course on Monday 4 November 2019 to remove two dead Pinus radiata (Monterey pine).
Works will take place on the top ridgeline of the 18th hole from 6.00 to 10.00 am. The stump grinding will occur at a later date to be advised by contractors.
The two trees recently died due to a combination of stress causing factors. They will be replaced with five Lophostemon confertus on Monday 18 November in the same location.
We work hard to keep our 15,000 trees healthy and beautiful by maintaining our trees, planting new trees and only removing trees when required or necessary.
We receive many questions about trees that are felled or removed despite ‘appearing healthy’ on the outside. But what many people do not know is that trees, like humans, are susceptible to a large and diverse range of health issues and structural defects.
Eventually a tree may need to be removed once other tree management strategies become insufficient for public safety or sustaining the health of a tree.
To find out more about how we manage our trees please read our Tree Master Plan here and read our blog on the life cycle of a tree here.
