Be aware of falling branches during extreme heat

The ACT Government is warning the community to be aware of falling branches from large trees in the ACT.

During periods of extended heat conditions large trees, particularly Eucalypts, have been known to drop large branches as a method of surviving the conditions.

The community should take care when seeking shade or parking vehicles under large trees and be aware that large branches could possibly drop and cause injury or damage.

For more information or to report large branches being dropped from trees contact Canberra Connect on 13 22 81.
