Avenues of street trees will be planted in at least 16 local streets in 2017, as part of a Council push to maintain and improve Monash's 'garden city' character.
Council has allocated $240,000 to plant up to 1,000 additional street trees next year, in line with our 30-year Street Tree Strategy which was adopted in June 2016.
A street tree renewal plan has been developed, with 16 streets identified for tree removals and re-plantings in 2017. In some of these streets, there are anchor trees - healthy mature trees which contribute to the quality of the streetscape - which will be retained alongside the new plantings. Similar re-planting programs in other streets are proposed for future years.
If you would like to discuss this matter further, please contact Sarah Priestley, Arborist, on 9518 3555.
Residents of Andleigh Drive (Mulgrave) have already selected their preferred species for planting over the next 12 months. In the other 15 streets, residents were able to choose from one of two suitable species.
