Caloundra Pandanus Relocation

Now this was a challenge, this was a job I did at Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland with Tropical Plantscapes of Noosa. These 3 beautiful Pandanus trees were on a new development site and needed relocating so the building works could get underway, the owners of the development donated the trees to the local council, so the council chose to have them relocated to a public park around 2 km from the site, and though it doesn’t sound far, it caused some big logistical challenges: road closures, removing power lines, removing signage and a police escort; great effort was made by all involved and the trees were successfully relocated to their new home.
