South-eastern Corner Miranda Park – adjacent to Port Hacking High School
We have assessed 10 Camphor Laurel trees at the south-eastern corner of Miranda Park and our arborists have decided to remove the trees in the interests of public safety.
The trees have a range of structural faults which now pose a risk to pedestrians, traffic and park users.
Structural faults include significant decay throughout the tree trunks and stems, along with entire dead sections of the trees. While the trees still appear generally green, the structural defects cannot be ignored.
Tree removal will start the week commencing 2 December 2022.
We considered several alternatives, including:
- isolating the trees from pedestrian movement,
- removing just the dead wood, or
- lopping the trees back to below the damaged areas.
However, for public safety and practicality reasons, our arborists decided to remove the trees and develop a plan to reinstate advanced trees at this location in 2023.
