Avenue of trees prevented by 'infrastructure'

Underground infrastructure has cruelled the ability for the Grow Urban Street Tree group to fulfil the desire of 29 residents in Ocean Beach Rd, Umina to grow an avenue of trees.

The residents from the southern end of Ocean Beach Rd, Umina, signed up to care for a street tree when tree group members went door knocking.

But, upon inspection by Central Coast Council engineers, the southern section of the road was found to have underground infrastructure restraints.

Nevertheless, six advanced native trees will be planted at 506 Ocean Beach Road, Umina Beach at 9.30am on National Tree Day, Sunday, July 28, by the tree group and the Umina Community Group.

"This is a small community event not requiring volunteers but observers are welcome,'' tree group member Ms Debbie Sunartha said.

"It's not going to give us an avenue of trees.

"Our second event is going to give us a bit more of an avenue but it is a very long street and we are going to need a lot more trees.

"This event will require several volunteers.

"We are holding a Creating Showcase Streets for Urban Shade on Sunday, August 11, in Springwood St, Ettalong.

"We will be planting 11 advanced trees, starting at 52 Kourung St, on the corner of Springwood St at 9.30am.

"This is a community event requiring volunteers.

"There will be some heavy lifting, digging, post hammering as well as watering and mulching,'' she said.

Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch and Cr Richard Mehrtens will be attending.

Another tree group member Ms Mell Chandler said these National Tree Day projects were the only registered National Tree activities for the southern wards of the Central Coast for the third year runningt.

"Despite Ettalong, Booker Bay and Woy Woy being identified as three of the Coast's most heat-affected suburbs, we're still not seeing Central Coast Council getting on board with National Tree Day,'' she said.

"Hornsby Shire Council, Northern Beaches Council and Lake Macquarie Council are all holding events."
