(c) Installation of the trees and the surrounding landscape treatment was undertaken by contractors engaged by TCCS.

(d) The trees are TCCS assets. The planting contractors are responsible for the maintenance of the trees until 24 April 2020 whilst they are under consolidation and TCCS will maintain them after that.

(e) These tree species were selected to match the official street tree species for their respective locations.

(f) The Platanus orientalis were sourced directly from one of the planting contractors and all other trees were sourced from the Yarralumla Nursery.

(g) The following tree species were planted during the city and Braddon planting program:

27x Platanus orientalis

2x Pyrus calleryana ‘Chanticleer’ syn. ‘Cleveland Select’

2x Cedrus deodara

1x Liquidambar styraciflua

3x Quercus lusitanica

2x Quercus rubra

2x Zelkova serrata ‘Green Vase’

(h) The final cost of the project including tree supply, planting costs and maintenance until April 2020 is $127,474.64 (GST incl.).

(i) The cost of tree planting and tree maintenance varied significantly across the program due to differences in the planting site locations, required landscape treatments and proximity to underground services and other infrastructure. Semi-advanced sized trees were purchased to help protect the new plantings from accidental damage and to discourage vandalism. The average cost of trees planted in this program was $671.61 per tree.

(j) At this stage, there are no specific plans in place to plant more trees in the city and Braddon commercial precincts.
