City Centre palm tree maintenance
Published: 14 Mar 2023
Council staff will begin scheduled maintenance of palm trees in the Mackay City Centre next week.
The maintenance will start on Tuesday, March 21, in Wood Street and will include pruning dead fronds/leaves, shaving the trunk, cutting away visible fruit stalks and removing seed pods.
Arborists will be on site between the hours of 5am and 9am on weekdays and they will be carrying out maintenance on trees located on Wood, Victoria, Sydney, Macalister and Nelson streets, and Matsuura Drive and Mangrove Road.
Work on Sydney Street has been scheduled for Saturday, March 25, to minimise disruption to the public and to avoid heavy traffic on this road during the week.
The maintenance is expected to be completed by Thursday, March 30, weather permitting.
Full traffic control will be in place and some road/lane closures will be required during the work.
Residents are asked to obey all instructions from council staff and traffic control officers.
The work is part of council’s annual maintenance program.
