Draft Urban Forest Plan

Thank you for your feedback, consultation has concluded but updates will be available on this page as the project progresses.


Canopy cover and a resilient urban forest are essential for community well-being and liveable suburbs, however tree loss is becoming more significant and is increasing each year.

The City has developed an Urban Forest Plan to address the challenge of declining canopy cover and to support positive change. The plan aims to enable the retention of more of our existing trees, encourage the planting of new trees and allow our trees to thrive, providing cool leafy suburbs into the future.
