Urban Tree Strategy


The Urban Tree Strategy provides the foundation of how Council will continue to enrich and enliven our neighbourhood character and amenity through the continued management of our most valuable assets now and for future generations.

The objective of this Strategy is to re-define tree-management practices, create plans and actions that will maintain and improve the quality of our urban forest for the future. Council policies and practices need to meet community expectations in line with available resources. Council recognises its responsibility to maintain an asset that is dynamic and subject to increasing environmental change in both built and natural environments. Management systems and practices must be flexible enough to adapt to these changes without being vague and inconsistent.
