  • RMS proposed tree selection

    over 6 years ago

    The RMS has selected these trees based on advice from their Design consultants and Council staff with the aim of:

    1. Partly screening, scaling down and softening of the pedestrian bridge, ramp and stairs;
    2. Restoring the heritage of Memory Park through its memorial trees;
    3. Land-marking the eastern edge of Hazelbrook village through significant tree planting; and
    4. Consolidating the indigenous planting theme on the eastern side of the village and between the two villages of Hazelbrook and Woodford.

    These trees have been carefully selected to be hardy AND functional as well as the correct scale for their location. A full list of selection criteria can be found in the Library.
