Following a recent review of street trees within the Esperance town site, six will be removed due to conflicts with existing infrastructure, ongoing costs for maintaining powerline clearance, and road safety issues.
Commencing Monday 22nd January, we will be removing three Peppermint trees on Dempster Street (located between Balfour Street and Kemp Street), and three Peppermint trees on Pink Lake Road (located between Rowse Street and Victoria Street).
We recognise the significance of street trees within the urban setting, and the retention of suitable trees within road reservations. We are committed to planting new trees in more suitable locations, where it becomes necessary to remove any street tree.
Further information can be obtained from Council’s Street Tree Policy which is available on the Shire website.
