Just prior to Christmas our Operations Manager Trevor Stein notified Elected Members and Executive about the deterioration of a pre-European River Red Gum (possibly 3-400 years old) in Northgate Street near Victoria Avenue. Grave fears were held for this tree.
- Removal of the paved footpath near the tree.
- A series of sucrose injections around the base of the tree combined with soil amelioration.
- Regular watering by Council’s watertruck.
