How many trees will be affected?
A total of 83 trees will be removed with 66 trees in the street retained and 128 new trees planted. You can review the changes on the following pages:
What types of trees are being planted?
The replacement species will be Brush Box (Lophostemon confertus) on the east side (the power line side of the street) and Oriental Plane Trees (Platanus orientalis 'digitata') on the west side of St Kilda Street.
The new trees have been carefully positioned to retain visibility of driveways and side streets. Trees will be formatively pruned with a single trunk to retain visibility and clearance to passing traffic as they mature. New trees will not be planted where there is a significant overhang from private trees.
