In line with City of Melbourne’s Urban Forest Strategy we are committed to creating a resilient, healthy and diverse urban forest and are planting 3000 new trees each year across the municipality.
Albermarle Street, Kensington has been identified for priority tree renewal works.
After several falling tree branches, an independent arborist assessed all trees on the street and determined:
Replacing just the trees that require removal in the short term will provide a gradual change to the landscape and allow retention of some canopy, but will mean inconsistent tree age and size. Removing all the trees together will provide uniform growth, consistent landscape character and less disruption to the street.
We now have an opportunity to consider a greening upgrade for the entire street that would improve amenity and tree canopy cover for your neighbourhood. This would be a significant change to the landscape, so we’d like your input.
Consultation closed 25 July 2022. The tree renewal project was completed in August 2023.
