Poplar, not popular
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.
