(9/7/2018) Esplanade Reserve tree removal

Contractors will remove an unsafe Monterey Cypress tree located just off the Marine Terrace/Essex Street intersection on Wed 11 July.

The work is expected to take most of the morning to finish. Motorists can expect some road delays during the work.

The decision to remove the tree follows recommendations made by a certified arborist who assessed the integrity of the tree and safety concerns in the immediate area.

Unfortunately the tree trunk contains irreparable damage which previously caused a large branch to crash dangerously to the ground. The rest of the unstable branches and the trunk itself continue to pose a threat to the public unless removed.

We’ll investigate a possible future replacement tree as part of our overall City of Fremantle Esplanade Reserve Landscape Masterplan.
