Inverleigh Tree Succession Plan
Council is seeking feedback from residents of Inverleigh to support the development of the Inverleigh Tree Succession Plan. The Inverleigh Tree Succession Plan survey is open from Tuesday 2 November to Sunday 5 December, 2021.
Golden Plains Shire Council has commenced the development of 10-year Inverleigh Tree Succession Plan, detailing the approach Council will take to removing and replacing trees in Inverleigh, as the health and structure of these trees deteriorates over time.
The Plan will detail the ongoing management of significant trees and newly planted trees at four locations throughout the Inverleigh township:
- Western Cypress Avenue
- Public Camping Reserve at the east of the township
- Lost Cypress Avenue at the eastern entrance of the township
- High Street median strip road reserve
The Plan will identify deteriorating trees in the Western Cypress Avenue and Public Camping reserve that may require removal, while implementing succession replanting for these trees and vacant areas from previous tree removal. Following the development of the plan, replanting is set to commence in the second quarter of 2022.
It will also include the re-instatement of the Eastern Avenue, which has been reduced over time due to tree removal and provide provisions for tree protection areas on the High Street median strip to reduce the decline of tree health due to soil compaction caused by parked vehicles.
Trees that may be suitable for future tree stump sculptures on the Western Avenue and Eastern Avenue will also be identified as part of the Inverleigh Tree Succession Plan development.
The Inverleigh Tree Succession Plan will provide a detail species palette based on site suitability and informed by community consultation, ensuring the future sustainability of trees in Inverleigh while recognising the historic significance trees in these locations hold to the community.
