    Extract from the CoPP website below:

    You are invited to participate in a Tree Summit coming your way in November 2009. The dates and program are not finalised but email your contact details to OSpace@portphillip.vic.gov.au or ring Joanne McNeill on 9209 6289 for further information and an invitation. By participating in the Tree Summit you will contribute to decision making about how trees and naturestrips are managed in the future. Climate change, drought conditions, increasing population and density,and changing community needs are all placing pressure on our trees and naturestrips.

    Grass Maintenance in the Parks

    The new grasses are growing well in the parks in Beacon Cove, enjoying the rain and warmer weather. We have been advised that weed spraying is programmed in the next 3 to 4 weeks to eliminate broad leaf and other weeds - which have also loved the rain and sun in the Beacon Cove area.

    Details of Feedback from this process can be found at the COPP web page - http://www.portphillip.vic.gov.au/trees.htm
