A tree replacement program at the Maryborough Municipal Swimming Pool will commence later this month.
Five cedar trees at the precinct are at the end of their life, with extended drought and bird damage the major factors in their demise. In April 2017, Heritage Victoria provided advice to Central Goldfields Shire that the cedar trees were not recoverable.
The trees, located on the west side of the precinct along the boundary fence line, will be removed on Tuesday 26 September and six replacement cedar trees will be planted on Wednesday 27 September.
The six new cedar trees, around three metres in height, will be planted in their place. Two additional trees will also be planted within the precinct in the coming months.
A Council Report on the tree replacement project was adopted at an Ordinary Meeting of Council on Tuesday 25 July.
