B-Line Construction Works

Tree planting along the Military Road corridor and the offset tree planting in Neutral Bay and Cremorne was successfully completed in Aug 2020.

Council planted replacement trees within the verge corridors of Military Road in Neutral Bay and Cremorne. The works were carried out as part of a “B-Line Urban Landscaping, Tree Planting Works” project on behalf of TfNSW. The planting is to replace trees removed for the original B-line project.

 

The photos below show what the completed planting looks like.

A Platanus orientalis ‘Digitata’ Oriental Plane was selected to be installed at this location. It is in accordance with the “B-Line Urban Landscaping, Tree Planting Works” project and Council’s Urban Forestry Strategy. The species was selected because:

  • The species is appropriate to the heritage character and period architecture of the area.

  • The surrounding streetscape and tree species.

  • The species is a proven performer in the existing site conditions with numerous mature specimens performing well in the surrounding area.

  • Provide amenity and value to the street and area.

  • To maintain tree canopy within North Sydney LGA.
