VicRoads relocated seven trees as part of works for the Clyde Road Upgrade between High Street and Kangan Drive in Berwick.
A truck mounted tree spade is used to dig out the root ball and tree, lifting and tilting each tree onto the back of the truck for safe transportation to its new location. Here is the first Clyde Road tree to make the move.
VicRoads worked with arborists, the City of Casey, National Trust and Residents, Ratepayers and Friends of Berwick Village to identify seven trees that could viably be relocated. (Video December 2011)
