CBD tree removals begin next week

8 August 2018

Work will begin next week to remove 12 trees in the Hamilton CBD. The trees, located in Hamilton Place, Kennedy Street, Lonsdale Street and Cox Street, were recommended for removal in an arborist report commissioned by Council, due to their very poor condition and limited useful life expectancy.

The removal works form stage two of the Hamilton CBD street tree action plan - a twelve month action plan funded in Council’s 2018/19 budget. The plan is based on recommendations from Arborists Homewood consulting and demonstrates Council’s commitment to the ongoing maintenance of street trees in the CBD.

Local contractor Tree Fella from Mooralla was awarded the contract for the works in a competitive tender process and will begin on Wednesday 15 August, weather permitting. All trees removed will be replaced with similar species except for those in Cox Street, which will be replaced at a later date as part of the Cox Street redevelopment.

The works are expected to take two days and Council does not anticipate any major disruptions for businesses, motorists or pedestrians.

A map outlining the locations of the trees to be removed is available at and trees have been signposted.

The full arborist report and action plan is available on Council’s website.
