Four large pine trees along the main avenue at Kinross Wolaroi School are facing the chopping block during the school holidays.

The trees that need to be removed are at the entrance to the Wolaroi campus and along the main driveway and were deemed a safety risk by external arborists and specialists from Orange City Council.

They will be removed during the school holidays.

It’s not the first time the school has had to remove large trees from its site and last year there were two or three trees at the school that fell down.

Although it has to remove some of its trees, the school has an ongoing replanting program in place and every year new trees are planted.

In the latest school bulletin, the school announced that regular inspections are conducted by the grounds team and a team of external arborists with assistance from Orange City Council specialists.

The goal of the inspections is to understand the health and age of the trees throughout both of the school’s campuses and protect the health of the trees.
