CASE STUDY: Ku-ring-gai Council Canopy Replenishment Program

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

The Client


In May 2009, Ku-ring-gai Council required the services of an experienced tree planting contractor to carry our Canopy Replenishment Program which involved the installation of 2,000 trees in a short time period and provision of after planning maintenance services. Based on our pricing of the works and expertise, Ku-ring-gai Council contracted Plateau Tree Service to carry out this major tree planting project. Ku-ring-gai Council has developed the Canopy Replenishment Program over the last 10 years. The process involves the collection of seed from locally endemic tree species. The seed collected is grown into juvenile trees which are then installed into the same areas from which the seed is sourced. Plateau Tree Service has been a major contractor to the council since 2002, providing tree maintenance and removal services and planting an average of 2,000 trees a year.  

The Solution

Plateau Tree Service planted in excess of 1000 trees in park areas and over 900 in streets in Ku-ring-gai shire.  

Certified aborists and qualified service crews installed tree species that are endemic to the area and which had been grown from locally sourced seed stocks. Tree planting helps to reduce our carbon footprint and the long term impact of the environment of mature tree removal.  Regular tree planting projects with appropriately selected and locally endemic tree species is an important part of best practice urban forest management. Projects such as the Ku-ring-gai project ensure there is a diverse healthy tree canopy for future generations to enjoy and to ensure the livelihood of native habitat is maintained.
