We are working with the Warrandyte Community Market Committee and other community groups to undertake tree protection works along the Yarra River Crown Land Reserve in Warrandyte.
Council commissioned an arborist’s report, which identified and prioritised trees that showed signs of stress due to vehicle and foot traffic at the monthly market. To protect these trees and ensure their longevity, logs and boulders will be placed around their root zones in November 2014 to act as natural barriers.
These works will improve the environmental amenity of the area, as well as reduce the market footprint and number of stalls. However, they will not significantly impact the Warrandyte Festival.
