Trees re­lo­cated to new en­trance

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE en­trance to Re­gatta Waters Whit­sun­days, just out­side of Can­non­vale, will soon re­sem­ble a trop­i­cal par­adise upon the re­lo­ca­tion of four­teen rain­for­est trees from within the de­vel­op­ment.

In a bid to ac­cen­tu­ate the nat­u­ral at­tributes of the Whit­sun­day prop­erty, ex­ist­ing iconic trop­i­cal fo­liage will be re­lo­cated to the front of the es­tate over the course of a week.

Lat­i­tude De­vel­op­ment Group has brought in a team of pro­fes­sion­als in­clud­ing lo­cal in­de­pen­dent land­scape ar­chi­tect John Harper and ar­borist David Hawthorn who will man­age the del­i­cate op­er­a­tion.

De­vel­op­ment man­ager Richard Fries, who is over­see­ing the project, said the re­lo­ca­tion was a sig­nif­i­cant task that would en­sure the preser­va­tion of the na­tive trees.

“It’s a slow process and one that needs to be done care­fully, so we have a team of ad­vi­sors that will en- sure each tree makes it safely to the main en­trance over the course of a week,” Mr Fries said.

“Once com­plete it will tie in well with the com­mu­nity lay­out which is de­signed to re­veal the nat­u­ral beauty of the Whit­sun­day land­scape. The fin­ished prod­uct will be a wel­come sight to home­own­ers and visi­tors, dis­play­ing the seren­ity and tran­quil­lity of the de­vel­op­ment.”

Con­struc­tion on the golf course con­tin­ues to forge ahead with man­made lakes to be filled by mid-Novem­ber this year.

The Re­gatta Waters Whit­sun­day com­mu­nity will be de­vel­oped over the next 10 to 15 years and will ul­ti­mately com­prise 2500 res­i­den­tial lots across a 283.5 hectare green­field site at Can­non­vale.

Dwellings will in­clude tra­di­tional homes, vil­las, town­houses and apart­ments.

TREES RE­LO­CATED: Trop­i­cal rain­for­est trees from within the Re­gatta Waters de­vel­op­ment have been re­lo­cated to its en­trance.
