Replacement of Lombardy Poplars at the National Library of Australia forecourt

Considering community feedback, associated with the heritage values of the Lombardy Poplars in the forecourt of the NLA, following plans to replace the existing trees, the National Capital Authority reengaged with the ACT Government to replace the trees with the same species.

At issue was Lombardy Poplars being regulated plants in the ACT, declared as a pest plant and prohibited.
