Following the development of the Woorndoo Township Plan 2019 and Council’s endorsement of the findings and recommendations contained in the Woorndoo Heritage Assessment Report noting the local significance of the Woorndoo Avenue of Honour, works will commence in the last week of May 2021 for the removal of the Woorndoo Street Cyprus trees. A safety exclusion will be set up around the equipment during the works which will be completed over approximately 3 weeks.
Due to cypress canker and ongoing maintenance issues with the existing Monterey cypress trees (Cupressus macrocarpa) in the region, consideration must be given to use of an alternative tree species. Selection of a replacement tree species will consider suitability of soil type, climate, appearance, tree growth, form and maintenance requirements.
Aiming for replacement in Spring 2022, a tree replacement program will be developed with the community that considers the replacement species and funding opportunities. This will allow time for the area to restabilise and prepare for planting.
Council invites you to have your say on the replacement tree species by survey by 30 June 2021

In addition to the survey, a drop in session is also planned to discuss tree selection survey results and any tree placement issues later in the year.
