Trees relocated to new entrance
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.
