Angophora Costata (also known as smooth-barked apple, rose gum, or Sydney red gum) has been selected as the new street trees for 8th Avenue - to replace the Illawarra Flame trees that have struggled in that environment.
This species gets to a Height of 10m + and a Width of 6m +. The trunk produces a rust red/brown coloured bark. It has skinny dark green leaves and produces masses of snowy white flowers in summer.
The planting will commence closer to Winter, and will be done bit by bit in order to minimise disruption to businesses, and optimise traffic management.
