Willow tree removal on Park Terrace

17 August, 2011
Willow tree removal on Park Terrace

Following the aftershocks on 13 June 2011, the Christchurch City Council’s arborists carried out safety inspections of trees in the Botanic Gardens, Hagley Park, Avon and Heathcote riverbanks and in high-use parks in the eastern suburbs.

During the inspections, a willow tree on the bank of the Avon River, opposite 76 Park Terrace, was found to have sustained serious damage to its trunk. In an attempt to retain the tree, urgent work was carried out on the willow tree on 16 June. This included the removal of a large part of the canopy to prevent it from failing.

The willow tree is located in a high profile location, near the Park Terrace road and footpath Due to the poor condition and deterioration of the tree, the willow tree needs to be removed. This work is planned to occur before the end of August 2011, along with routine maintenance pruning of other willow trees on Park Terrace.

It is intended that this tree and other trees that have been removed since the 22 February 2011 earthquake will be replaced at a later stage.

For any enquires regarding the removal of this tree or any other tree, please call the Council’s Customer Call Centre on 941 8999 or 0800 800 169.
