TREE REMOVAL, THE NEWELL HWY AND RIFLE RANGE ROAD, DUBBO

Dubbo Regional Council (DRC) would like to advise the community that a number of trees will be removed along the Newell Highway and Rifle Range Road Dubbo.  This work is being done to facilitate the installation of a rising water main pipeline.

OzArk’s qualified ecologist has assessed the trees for their habitat value (ie to see they contained hollows, nests or dreys etc), 37 trees have been marked for removal, with a further 81 to be retained.

A pre-clearance survey has been conducted to identify any additional habitat trees and inform Council of any additional biodiversity issues that may arise prior to removal. A qualified ecologist will be present on site prior to removal of the 37 trees.

Traffic Management will be in place from Tuesday 15 September 2020 to facilitate the tree removal works and road users are asked to be mindful when in the area.

Council have engaged local Dubbo based contractor Western Tree Management to undertake the works.

Work is scheduled to be completed by close of business Friday 18 September 2020.
