Doncaster Avenue River Red Gums

Preserving Doncaster Avenue’s Iconic River Red Gums

Doncaster Avenue Colonel Light Gardens Red GumsThe grand old River Red Gums in Doncaster Avenue, Colonel Light Gardens have great aesthetic, heritage and environmental value. Protecting these trees is a high priority for Council during the current footpath paving project.

New permeable footpaths and driveway crossovers will replace the bitumen footpath which has served for many decades. By using permeable concrete block paving the tree root zones will be enhanced by allowing rain to soak through, and they will lift the appearance of Doncaster Avenue to match other recently upgraded streets in the garden suburb. Using permeable paving will help to protect the trees and also reduce footpath maintenance costs, as roots grow deeper than beneath sealed pavements and so reduce footpath damage and tree injury.

Work in Doncaster Avenue is scheduled to begin in June.
