Commencing Saturday 25 November 2023, Lithgow City Council will remove seven London Plane trees in Short Street, Lithgow.

The seven London Plane trees require removal as they are at the end of their lifespan. As a result of Council’s regular process of tree health inspection, it has been identified that the trees have major structural faults and thereby pose a direct risk to the community.

A safe removal of these trees requires a temporary power outage. This outage has been approved for Saturday, 25 November 2023. As this will impact the adjacent Public School, it is essential that this work occur on a weekend.

Remaining groundwork will be completed on Monday, 27 November 2023. Understanding that there are high voltage power lines above, each of these trees will be replaced with a more suitable alternative later in the season. Should any resident wish to provide input on the species selection, please write to Council at
