|CWR Presents: : Keeping trees healthy in the Perth urban forest
Recent decades have seen a rapid increase in urban development throughout
Perth. Such expansion has resulted in the unfortunate removal of large
amounts of endemic vegetation.
The vegetation that is retained is often already predisposed to premature decline, and is further impacted upon by many inciting and contributing factors often leading to further decline and subsequent death. The managers of these trees allocate large budgets to their ongoing maintenance, removal and replacement, often driven by the fear of limb failure and risk to life and property.
This talk will discuss the various factors that cause premature decline of trees in the Perth urban area, the importance of correct diagnosis, and alternative methods for sustainable management of the tree population.
