Council wishes to advise that the bi-annual Coconut Palm De-nutting Program commenced on Monday 30 May 2022 with completion anticipated by Friday 3 June 2022, weather permitting.
This work will be undertaken by Taylors Tree Lopping and will begin in Lucinda, with multiple crews progressively de-nutting coconuts in high-risk areas through our local beach communities.
It should be noted that this round of work is focused on coconut de-nutting to remove the immediate threat of safety and liability to Council and does not include the widescale removal of coconut palms. Only trees that have been identified as hazardous are likely to be removed this round.
Further, scheduled coconut palm removals as part of the longer-term Coconut De-nutting Program and Reduction Strategy adopted by Council will commence towards the end of the year, post community consultation.
