THE challenges of frost, drought and strong winds have taken a toll on Orange’s trees and this Wednesday, the Environmentally Concerned Citizens of Orange will discuss how to tackle the issue.
Orange City Council city presentation manager Nigel Hobden will attend the ECCO meeting at the ELF from 7.30pm, with all residents welcome.
He will address the meeting on issues relating to the removal, vandalism, decline and replacement of trees in streetscapes, parks and private residences.
Publicity officer Neil Jones said the past winter’s severe frosts, combined with the drought, had a “devastating” effect on street trees.
“It is important council provides adequate funds for their replacement if we are going to maintain our beautiful streetscapes,” he said.
