Shortland Cemetery Tree Assessment and Maintenance Plan

Xyst undertook tree condition and risk assessments on almost 100 trees at Shortland Cemetery.

The main driver for this work was an aging tree population and potential damage to surrounding historic assets (e.g. masonry and surrounds). For each tree we collected GPS location, tree species and size data, and we undertook a condition and risk assessment – Quantified Tree Risk Assessment (QTRA).

Data was provided to the client in both spreadsheet and shape file. A Tree Maintenance Plan was developed for the site which provided an overview of the tree population and highlighted long-term management options.

Project Benefit

Our work has allowed for a proactive and risk-based approach to tree maintenance by providing prioritised works, long-term management options and high-level funding estimates.
