Gardens prepared for new tree arrival

CLEAN UP: A Mount Gambier City Council staff member tidies all that remains of the 20 metre claret ash, which was once the largest tree in the Cave Gardens precinct.

THE giant stump that was once part of the largest tree in the Cave Gardens precinct was removed yesterday and will be replaced with a new tree on Monday.

The 20 metre high claret ash was split in two during extreme winds in late March, with only the trunk of the 80-year-old tree left standing.

Mount Gambier City Council previously considered carving the stump
