Poplar, not pop­u­lar

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Times News -

THE Man­jimup Shire Coun­cil has voted to re­move five poplar trees from Coro­na­tion Park in Man­jimup.

The trees were orig­i­nally planted around an el­e­vated wa­ter tank which was re­moved many years ago.

Dam­age caused by the root sys­tems has ne­ces­si­tated the re­moval of the trees.

Man­jimup shire pres­i­dent Paul Omodei said cam­eras had been used to in­spect the dam­age to the ex­ist­ing drainage pipes in the CBD, which con­firmed the poplar trees had en­tered the storm wa­ter pipe sys­tem and caused dam­age to the pipe net­work.

The trees should be re­moved in early Oc­to­ber.
