Toughbooks help sustain the future of Centennial Parklands
Centennial Parklands, Sydney, has invested in Panasonic CF-18 Toughbooks as part of their ongoing asset maintenance program. The Toughbooks are playing a vital role in helping to sustain one of Sydney’s favourite parks for future generations. It is estimated that the Parklands – made up of Centennial, Queen and Moore Parks in Sydney city – will need to replace around 60 per cent of its tree population over the next 50 to 60 years, the equivalent of about 250 to 300 trees a year.
The Toughbooks, which are being used to assess and monitor the parklands’ tree growth, health and safety level over time, were chosen for their compact size, durability, water-resistant keyboard and LCD screen, as well as their ability to house and run vital GPS asset tracking systems. According to Centennial Parklands’ Director of Park Assets, Ian Innes, the tree replacement program is a vital strategy to ensure the Parklands maintains and protects its flora assets into the future, in the face of ever increasing stresses caused by the harsh effects of the growing urban environment.
