The initial assessment of Mature Ficus in the grounds of Government House resulted in the retention of two large trees. Detailed management plans were prepared for a large Ficus platypoda, or Small Leaved Fig and a Ficus macrocarpa, or Moreton Bay Fig. Both trees were important to the garden but presented a number of challenges. Tree Environs designed and installation of a complex, flexible storm protection system in the Small Leaved Fig in conjunction with a regular maintenance regime to more effectively manage risk. The Moreton Bay fig had its own safety and health issues to be resolved. The ongoing monitoring and crown management by the Tree Environs team ensures these trees will grace the site for many years to come.
