To help promote regeneration and for public safety reasons, significant tree trimming works will be carried out on 10 Elm trees at Winchelsea Lions Park, next to the highway.
Arborists have determined that the trees’ deadwood needs to be removed to reduce the crowns back to live wood, so that they can continue to grow from these points.
The deadwood in the tree canopies has increased a lot in the last few years, which is largely due to corellas stripping the upper canopy branches. We had hoped that natural regeneration would occur, but unfortunately the damage has been too significant.
The tree works are expected to take place 30 - 31 August, weather permitting. Access to the park will be maintained during the works.
