Most of them dead, The rest of them dying. O’Connor shops trees

By johnboy 31 December 2013 23

dead trees

Standing at O’Connor Shops this afternoon it took me a minute to get my finger on what was wrong with the normally leafy shady space.

A hell of a lot of the trees are dead or dying.

A real shame.

What’s Your opinion?

Ten trees are scheduled for removal during May/June 2014 and replacement plantings will be organised. Signage will be installed shortly to inform people.

OK, so, Media Room, rather than just announce your after-the-fact bizzo, please answer this quesion: just why didn’t TAMS water them and keep them healthy though droughts? You have staff and watering trucks. Why wasn’t watering allocated to this valuable shade resource? These are NOT trees with a limited lifespan. These are trees that should have lived well past a century. Sticking new saplings into the ground does not make up for this wanton neglect, sorry. It will be 20 years before the shade is back. FAIL.

And back on topic – does anyone know why the trees died? Natural or man-made causes?

Seriously,

Probably from climate change/lack of water/ change in water in area.

It’s happening all over regional areas.
