Wardell Street Trees

Following a submission from the Wardell and District Progress Association, Council resolved to implement a Street Tree Planting Program for Wardell. 

The program involves avenue street planting in Carlisle and Cedar Streets west of the Pacific Highway, and Fitzroy and Sinclair Streets east of the Pacific Highway.

Council staff have made an arboricultural and utility assessment to propose a selection of suitable street trees with a range of size, habit and colouration. The specific species have been assessed as fitting to the streetscape, around existing vegetation, underground and overhead service constraints. 

The selected tree species will improve the amenity and biodiversity of the Wardell township while also providing a range of additional environmental, economic, social and psychological benefits.

A total of 59 street trees have been proposed. Half the street trees will be planted by Council staff from February 2021 - June 2021 with the remaining half planted February 2022 - June 2022. Small saplings of the respective tree species will be planted, staked, mulched and watered until established. 

Residents may like to assist with watering trees outside their houses and can contact Council so overwatering does not occur.
