Collins Street Extension, Melbourne
The client's brief was to supply large-growing trees for this project, to blend in with the existing streetscape along Collins Street. 66 Platanus x acerifolia were supplied in 55cm RCBs at a height of 4.0m, with a 60mm calliper.
Broad tolerances, and an upright growth habit, generally with a rounded crown, mean that Plane Trees are proven urban performers, and have had a long history as street trees.
All trees have established well and create an impressive avenue with towering buildings as a backdrop.
