Cyclic Street Tree Maintenance Works, 18 October 2017 – 20 October 2017

Council’s tree contractors AUTS (Australian Urban Tree Services) are currently undertaking cyclic street tree maintenance works in the following streets:

  • Grove Street, Birchgrove
  • Gipps Street, Birchgrove
  • Bates Street, Birchgrove
  • Dock Road, Birchgrove
  • Rowntree Street, Birchgrove
  • Short Street, Birchgrove
  • Phillip Street, Birchgrove
  • Church Street, Birchgrove
  • McKell Street, Birchgrove
  • Spring Street, Birchgrove
  • Cameron Street, Birchgrove
  • Bay Street, Birchgrove
  • Ballast Point Road, Birchgrove

Pruning works that are included as part of the program are below:

  • The pruning of trees to raise crown
  • Removal of deadwood
  • The pruning of trees to allow for 2 metre property clearance where tree structure allows. This means that there still may be branches that overhang your fence line. Council considers a 2 metre clearance from the canopy of the tree to the roof of properties adequate clearance in an urban environment.
  • The pruning of trees to allow for clearance to service wires
  • Pruning of branches which do not allow for 2.5 metre footpath clearance
  • Report on works carried out to all trees
  • Report to Council on any dead / dangerous / diseased trees that would require possible removal of major pruning works to be carried out

The program has proved successful with the number of street tree complaints received being reduced and the appearance and amenity of the street being improved.
