Helensvale, River Links Estate - removal of blue quandong trees and hedges

The City has programmed for removal all mature Elaeocarpus grandis (blue quandong trees) located within River Links Estate.

Further removals of hedged plant beds and some landscaping will be undertaken in conjunction with tree removal and replacement works.

The programmed tree removal and replacement is undertaken by qualified arborists and necessary to protect private properties and surrounding hard infrastructure against:

  • tree root intrusion
  • tree root conflicts with underground utility services
  • upheaval of hard-scape including footpaths, kerb & channelling, and road surfaces
  • tree canopy overhang into private property which increase as trees mature.

The City intends to undertake compensatory replacement tree plantings with the more appropriate tree species installed as street trees within River Links Boulevard East and West.

Hedged areas will be replaced with turf grass and newly-designed garden beds to improve sight lines, the overall landscape aesthetic of River Links Estate.
