Tree works: Dickens Drive, Centennial Park (26-27 August)

Published on 21 Aug 2019

The Centennial Parklands’ Arboriculture team will be removing three dead trees and carrying out deadwood removal from other surrounding trees on Dickens Drive near the Centennial Park Labyrinth on Monday 26 and Tuesday 27 August 2019. 

The dead trees are Casuarina cunninghamiana (River she-oak) and two of which partly overhang Dickens Drive, where many cars park throughout the day. The trees are starting to shred limbs and must be removed for public safety reasons.
Traffic control and signage will be in place during the works. Please take care if you are passing through the area.

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.

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.
