Feedback sought on Glen Huon Boulevard trees

In response to ongoing community feedback regarding Glen Huon Boulevard London Plane trees shedding leaf litter and seed pods each Autumn, Council is seeking community feedback on a strategy to replace 22 of the trees with suitable native species.

Each autumn, as the trees shed their leaf litter and seed pods, the Shire receives requests for verge to be cleaned, support for affected land owners to clean their yards or for the trees to be removed.

The Shire of Dardanup is responsible for managing trees located on the road reserve, Crown land or other land under care, control and management of the Shire. This includes, but is not limited to, the inspection, maintenance, removal and/or replacement of trees.

Despite the widely recognised environmental, amenity, health and social benefits of trees, sometimes their impact on safety and/or maintenance of assets like roads and paths, or impact on private property require solutions to be investigated.

The 22 London Plane trees identified for replacement under the plan are located on Glen Huon Boulevard between Clydesdale Drive and Gromark Gate.

It is proposed that replacement of the trees commence in the 2022/23 financial year.

As they are removed, the trees would be replaced with mature suitable native species to be determined by Council.

You can view a diagram indicating the position of the trees HERE.

Feedback on this proposal should be provided in writing and include your name, address, contact phone number and email address.
