Fruit Tree removals extended until end of October

Thursday, 19 October, 2017

Free urban fruit tree removal program has been extended until the end of October.

Property owners with unwanted fruit trees in residential yards have until the end of October to apply to have them removed at no cost through the Urban Fruit True Removal Program.

The program is part of a regional approach to combating the spread of Queensland Fruit Fly (QFF) and has been extended to accommodate the high number of property owners opting to remove unwanted fruit trees.

More than 600 applications have been received to have unwanted fruit trees removed from residential yards since the program began in July.  

Goulburn Murray Valley Regional Fruit Fly Coordinator Ross Abberfield said unattended fruit trees and rotten fruit left on the ground or tree provide an ideal breeding ground for fruit fly.
