It’s Spring and we should be looking at our Street Tree Management Program again. It had been put on the back-burner but should be dusted off and prioritised.
At the August Forum meeting there was a question about street tree planting. Council advised that staff are currently programming the next tree planting works. There are around 100 tree locations being reviewed in the Manly Ward. That would be great. Let’s hope decent-sized trees are planted and not just small shrubs and that trees are selected from the pallet of trees the community recommended and Council agreed to previously. We need trees that give character to our area as well as shade. These trees also need to be planted where there are no overhead wires.
