Castle Drive Fig Tree
In November 2017 Ballina Shire Councillors resolved to remove the fig tree located in Castle Drive, Lennox Head.
Council’s specialised arborists have been involved in the management and care of this tree for many years. In this instance Council has investigated and exhausted all options to retain this tree, as all identified options presented to Council were cost prohibitive and provided no assurance of success.
To date, Council has commissioned multiple specialist reports. A summary of these reports can be found below along with letters to local residents of Castle Drive, Lennox Head.
Council proactively manages fig trees throughout the shire, as part of an overall plan.
