Tree works: Darley Road slopes, Centennial Park (15 November)

Following a recent advanced tree assessment, we will be removing a medium Coral Tree, Erythrina x skyesii, located on the Darley Road slopes in Centennial Park on Thursday 15 November 2018.

The tree has died and must be removed for public safety reasons.

A comprehensive tree succession plan is currently underway in this area to replace these ageing trees. New Ficus rubiginosa species have been planted as well as other red flowering species such as Brachychiton acerifolius in recent years.

Works will take place from 7.00 am to 5.00 pm (weather permitting) and involve grinding of the stump

Further information

We work 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.
