Horsham trees to be replaced
Unsafe elms in Horsham’s Wilson Street will be replaced as part of Horsham Rural City Council’s ongoing street tree renewal program.
Council technical services director John Martin said independent arborists had recommended the council remove stands of ageing trees along the road due to their hazardous, or near hazardous condition.
Similar replacement trees, Japanese elms, will be replanted in the coming months.
“Horsham has a population of elm trees in its tree estate. They have been fantastic street and park trees, however, in many cases they are ageing and it is time for their renewal,” Mr Martin said. “Advanced trees will be planted to lessen the impact of the removal.”
