Tree works near Darley Road (19 December 2019)

Published on 18 Dec 2019

Following regular tree health assessments, Centennial Parklands arborists identifed that two Coral trees (Erythrina x sykesii) along the Darley Road fence are in terminal decline and need to be removed for public safety reasons. 

These trees will be replaced with a more suitable species with a similar seasonal red flower display, such as Tree waratah (Alloxylon flammeum) and Illawarra flame tree (Brachychiton acerifolius).

Due to the loocation of these trees, a traffic management plan will be in place along Grand Drive from 7.00 am to 4.00 pm on Thursday 19 December 2019.

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 cyle of a tree here.
