PRO­TECT­ING VALU­ABLE AS­SETS

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Quick News -

SUBIACO’S 3800 public trees in its parks and re­serves alone are val­ued at more than $23 mil­lion, says Mayor Heather Hen­der­son. The City of Subiaco re­cently re­leased its Plant Pathogen Man­age­ment Plan 2015-19 for strate­gies to pro­tect its 15,000 street trees and 78ha of parks and re­serves from dis­ease. The plan is to pro­tect plants from dieback, honey fun­gus, canker dis­ease and sphaerop­sis blight. “Pro­tect­ing our nat­u­ral as­sets is ex­tremely im­por­tant,” Mrs Hen­der­son said.
