Lane Cove Rated Most Livable City in Sydney in 2021 Liveability Census

Lane Cove, Sydney, Australia: A survey of more than 30,000 people around Australia, including 10,766 in NSW, found Lane Cove had a liveability score of 76 out of 100, compared to the national average of 68.

The score of 76 made Lane Cove the top rated suburb in Sydney.

Lane Cove Council voted most liveable city in Sydney by its residents

The 2021 Australian Liveability Census, conducted between March and June this year by Place Score, is Australia’s largest community-led social research project.

The 2021 report found Lane Cove Council was given the highest score (76) by its residents for its sustainable urban design, but it was marked down for ease of driving and parking.

Place Score chief executive Kylie Legge said the survey found a strong preference for neighbourhoods to be more walkable and less dominated by cars. People wanted more green space and safer, well-maintained public spaces.

“Ease of driving and parking is neither highly valued by the community, when compared to all the other things we need to make liveable neighbourhoods, nor is it a priority,” Ms Legge said.

The survey also found the COVID-19 crisis led people to place more value on nature and access to neighbourhood amenities, but less importance to ease of driving and parking.

"I can see why Lane Cove is rated so highly. As a professional arborist, I do a lot of tree removal in Lane Cove and I'm always impressed by the amenities, parks, and nature throughout the suburb," agrees Abdul, owner of Sydney Tree Company.

Tree removal in Lane Cove by Sydney Tree Company

“One of the important areas in Sydney that we’ve decided to focus on is Lane Cove because of how notoriously hazardous the trees are in this suburb for businesses and homeowners,” says Abdul, a spokesperson for Sydney Tree Company. “Furthermore, Lane Cove is a place that shares a strong relation with its trees, either we are talking about social well-being, attracting people and visitors to the area, and increasing property values. For this reason, Sydney Tree Company is committed to providing a family-like service at ‘mate’s rates’ (great prices).”

The arborists from Sydney Tree Company can help rescue trees using tree surgery or by performing selective pruning rather than tree removal whenever possible. This is because they choose to be a responsible ecological company, thus always choosing to minimize the effect of their tree activities on the environment. They would be pleased to discuss with the homeowner or property owner the possible alternatives to the total removal of trees with the goal of allowing customers to have a safe and healthy environment.

Meanwhile, Sydney Tree Company in Lane Cove can provide tree pruning, which is often necessary for mature trees in order get rid of dead and dying branches as a way to keep the tree healthy and to minimize risks for people. This kind of pruning is called “cleaning.” They will also remove certain live branches as a way to decrease density and substantially reduce wind resistance and potential damage during a storm. Tree pruning is also vital to ensure the tree branches are proportional. The selective elimination of branches, roots, or buds can help in enhancing tree health and minimizing the risk of falling branches. The arborists have the necessary knowledge and experience in determining the kind of pruning that is required for a particular tree.

Tree removal is a challenging and time consuming task and can be very dangerous. The skilled workers from Sydney Tree Company will always try to avoid tree removal whenever possible by helping keep the trees healthy and strong. However, bad location, disease, and storm damage can make it necessary to remove a particular tree.

They also offer tree stumping to get rid of old tree stumps. They offer stump grinding where they get rid of the stump and surrounding roots substantially below the surface of the surrounding area to permit the addition of grass and ground covering and entirely remove any signs of the stumps that can be an eye sore in the yard.
