Docklands Secrets - June 2012 Image

They’re alive!

Some of them may look dead (like this one on the corner of Bourke St) but Places Victoria (PV) says all of Harbour Esplanade’s Norfolk Island Pine trees are alive.

Unlike Monty Python’s parrot, the pictured tree has not curled up its claws and gone to meet its maker.  It’s “distressed”.

Places Victoria says that four of the trees are distressed but claims that they can be saved.

Places Victoria’s Docklands manager Simon Wilson said the organisation’s arborist had examined the trees along Harbour Esplanade and identified four in need of help.

“Our arborist has identified four (two percent) that are distressed – two due to drainage issues and two due to vandalism or other damage,” Mr Wilson said.

“Special maintenance of the trees including fertilisation, irrigation and weekly inspections are taking place to return them to full health.”

“If the trees can’t be returned to full health they will be replaced with the same size stock.”
