Trees

Over 150 trees have been planted in Port Melbourne this spring, including these Araucaria [Norfolk Island Pines] filling in gaps along the Boulevard.
Trees of every type have been planted - exotic, native and indigenous.
The trees will be supported with a two year watering programme.
The tree planting programme is prepared throughout the year on the basis of report and inspection.
A detailed assessment of street trees in each street across Port Phillip will be done this year.

I hope the new Norfolk Pines on The Boulevard have the opportunity to get their roots into the soil.

Apparently the existing Norfolk Pines sit on top of a layer of concrete so are stunted in their growth.
