The tree was assessed for several reasons; including location to critical Council infrastructure and public risk to patrons at the playground and neighbouring Aquatic Centre. The trees size, location and defects (primarily being internal wood rot fungus) gave the tree high Hazard Rating and was therefore authorised by the General Manager for removal.
Removal will take place Thursday 17 September 2020 (weather permitting). Tresillian Park, including the amenities, will be closed to the public during removal.
We apologise for the inconvenience of this temporary closure; however public safety is of the highest importance.
