Tree works: Kensington Ponds (22 May 2020)

Tree works to remove a dead tree will be carried out in the south-west corner of Centennial Park on Friday 22 May 2020.

The mature Eucalyptus botryoides has died due to stress related factors and is located adjacent to the Kensington Ponds and the Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub (ESBS) bushland remnant area. See tree location below.

Works will take place from 6.00 am to 10.00 am and are not related to the Kensington Pond Bridge project currently underway in the area.

Pedestrian traffic will be rerouted around the works.

Further information 

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.
