Historic Morpeth – Root...

Historic Morpeth the latest Root Director installation for Maitland City Council

Morpeth Township - Image Project

Nestled on the Hunter River in New South Wales, historic Morpeth has a rich history and was instrumental to the development of the Hunter Valley. Historic Trust-classified, it remains a living museum with quaint streetscapes and beautifully-preserved buildings.

Root Director cutaway

root directorAlso known by its Aboriginal name ‘Illalung’, Morpeth formed one third of a land grant made to Lieutenant Edward Charles Close by Governor Brisbane in 1821. With its desirable location on the Hunter River, Morpeth quickly evolved into a frontier town and busy river port channelling produce from the Hunter Valley to nearby Newcastle Harbour and surrounds.

Today, Morpeth continues to thrive with many visitors exploring the township each year. Maitland City Council is dedicated to preserving the town for generations to come and has recently planted some new street trees using Citygreen’s Root Director system. The council has leveraged this system for more than 20 years, enabling countless trees to thrive in close proximity to underground infrastructure and roadways by directing root growth downwards. In the latest installation at Morpeth, we see the new round Root Directors used within a hardscaped area, providing a neatly-rounded edge between the trees and the surrounding pavement. So far, the trees are performing well and should stand the test of time – like historic Morpeth itself.

We went backwards and forwards a number of times, looking at different iterations of the design and, nothing was too much trouble to examine and explore different possibilities. I would highly recommend the Citygreen Design Studio to any future client considering using your services.”
