Street tree inspections

All Council street trees are inspected every two years by a suitably qualified arborist for decay, cracks, crossing limbs, disease and structural integrity. All defects are assessed by a Council arborist and a decision is made in line with our Street Tree Policy(PDF, 12KB) regarding removal or retention.

All street trees are pruned every two years for footpath and road clearance to ensure good access can be achieved for everyday activities.

We follow an Electrical Line Clearance Management Plan (ELCMP)(PDF, 3MB) to ensure we are compliant with Energy Safe Victoria regulations.
