Peter Mumford, the owner of Arbor Operations in Brisbane, has been involved in the Queensland agriculture, horticulture and arboriculture industries for more than forty years.
He has been entrusted with the task of employing cutting-edge technology to protect the magnificent century-old trees in West End, one of Brisbane’s most happening hubs.
“The watering program creates a more favourable growing environment for the trees and optimises their root development.”
“It’s a great example of old meeting new. It’s also fantastic to see developers embracing this new technology.”
The Arbor Operations teams will be using some of the latest gadgetry to ensure the old trees remain protected and healthy during the re-development phase.
This includes a high-tech irrigation systems in which use a number of mathematical parameters to measure, monitor and log moisture levels deep under the ground, where the root structures of the trees are located.
The trees, which are listed by Brisbane City Council as Significant Landscape Trees, include bunya and hoop pines that are protected under the Natural Assets Local Law 2003.
