It’s listed, by gum

A LEMON scented gum has become just the seventh privately-owned entry on Vincent council’s inventory of significant trees.

The gum tree (Corymbia citriodora) at 19 Dunedin Street in Mount Hawthorn was found to provide good shade cover and be of “outstanding aesthetic quality” by a council-appointed arborist.

• The magnificent scented gum at the back of this Dunedin Street home has been declared significant enough to warrant some extra protection.

“Assessment has revealed a well-formed crown structure and tree vitality was assessed as high, indicative of the potential of the tree to maintain/improve the current condition and a useful life expectancy of 40-plus years is deduced,” the arborist’s report read.

Vincent has had a significant tree register since 1997, but it was expanded in 2013 to allow private landowners to nominate trees on their property.
