Each suburb on the Gold Coast consists of trees. They provide fresher air and a relaxing view for the residents all across the City from the far reaches of Stapylton all the way south to Natural Bridge and east to Coolangatta. But storm event such as cyclones, thunderstorms and gusty winds can impact trees. The entire tree may be twisted or uprooted altogether, whilst taller trees become prime targets of lightning causing branches to be stripped off.
Queensland’s cyclone season usually starts from the month of November and ends in April. Since the state is the most disaster impacted area in the country, every year during storm season, the Queensland has always been preparing for risk disaster management. The Queensland Government alongside the Council of the City of Gold Coast launched programs which outline how residents of Gold Coast ought to prepare, respond and recover from such potential disasters.
December last year, according to the Gold Coast Bulletin, there were more than 20,000 homes in the Gold Coast lashed due to heavy rainfall and strong winds brought by thunderstorms. Trees were damaged that also hit power lines leaving homes without electricity. Strong winds also littered some areas with the debris of trees. Some of the most affected suburbs were Springbook, Coomera, Robina and Varsity Lakes.
After the storm, the land was filled with trees, loose wood and all types of garbage. With this, a land clearing operation is advised. Land clearing is important as it makes the land usable. Land formations become safer and more secure, and stops diseases as it includes the removal of dead tree limbs that can be infested by pests. It also involves removing unwanted vegetation and tree stumps that may cause hazards to the residents of the Gold Coast.
