Tree comes down at city hall
Workers are removing the Red Ironbark Eucalyptus in front of city hall is today, Monday, September 28. According to the city, four different arborists have made independent inspections and each found evidence of termite damage, significant rotting and bleeding, which is a sign of dead wood and decay within the heartwood of the tree. The tree poses a high risk of branch failure and resulting in injury because of the high-traffic location. City staff realizes this tree is a main focal point for city hall and the community, however, the city manager emphasized that public safety is a priority.
