Street tree pruning

Council inspects and prunes all street trees every two years.

Pruning zones

Knox is divided into zones with each zone being pruned at a specific time. This makes sure:

  • trees are clear of overhead electric wires
  • pedestrians are safe to use footpaths without concern of low hanging branches
  • traffic is safe to use the roadway without concern for low branches
  • deadwood is removed from the tree
  • juvenile trees are shaped.
