ON THE LAND Urban fruit tree removal for free
Moira Shire, in partnership with the Goulburn Murray Valley Fruit Fly Governance Group, has a program in place to remove unwanted fruit trees growing in urban yards.
Wherever you are in the shire, from Bundalong to Barmah, this program is available as further effort to combat Queensland Fruit Fly (QFF).
Fruit trees you no longer need or are unable to look after can provide breeding grounds for QFF which in turn can have a serious impact on the local fruit growing industry and home gardens.
Now is an ideal time to remove potential breeding sites as the QFF is relatively dormant during this period when the weather is too cold for them to be active.
The offer applies to urban residential fruit trees only and the work will be carried out by a registered and insured private contractor.
To arrange your free fruit tree removal, call Moira Shire Council on 5871 9222 before Saturday, September 30.
