Tree sur­vey

A two-year sur­vey of more than 6000 trees in Cen­tral Otago’s pub­lic parks and road re­served by an ar­borist has iden­ti­fied trees in the re­gion which are in need of prun­ing, dead-wood­ing and re­moval. The sur­vey was con­ducted by the Cen­tral Otago Dis­trict Coun­cil to find the short- and long-term main­te­nance re­quire­ments of the trees. Coun­cil parks of­fi­cer Ge­off King said the sur­vey iden­ti­fied some po­ten­tial safety con­cerns and work would be­gin to ad­dress the is­sues dur­ing the win­ter months.
