The Importance of Trees in our Community
Most of us understand the importance of trees in our daily lives for maintaining healthy communities and the necessity to retain and replenish tree stock for our planet. The Operations team at Karrakatta undertakes an ongoing remedial tree program that safeguards the tree population in our cemetery. Arborists check our mature tree stock for viability and provide information about maintaining healthy growth. The process includes clearing of dead wood, lifting the canopy of trees to improve access and security and preventing leaf litter building up and becoming a fire hazard. Our mature trees are vitally important for providing food and shelter for wildlife.
