Tree change

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

THE Town of Vic­to­ria Park has started to log a record of ev­ery street tree in its bor­ders, which will lead to a change in its prun­ing prac­tices to save time, money and re­sources.

Ev­ery sin­gle street tree in the Town will be au­dited by an in­de­pen­dent ar­borist.

The in­for­ma­tion col­lated from the au­dit will not only up­date the Town’s records, but also help to iden­tify which trees need prun­ing.

All precincts in the Town will be pruned as per the rec­om­men­da­tions from this au­dit.

To en­sure that records are kept up to date, au­dits will be car­ried out each year prior to prun­ing and trees will not be pruned if they do not re­quire prun­ing at the time of the au­dit.

Pre­vi­ously the Town has taken a ‘blan­ket ap­proach’ to­wards prun­ing, trim­ming ev­ery tree, in­clud­ing trees that may not have needed to be pruned.
