Urban Forest Strategy

A thriving urban forest helps to support the key pillars of Community, Environment, Liveability and Prosperity that guide the vision, direction and provision of Council services. Council Plan 2013-2017

The importance of the urban forest to a City's liveability, environment and prosperity is widely recognised. Trees and green spaces play an important role in the physical and mental wellbeing of community and are an essential element of any city. The City of Stonnington is fortunate to have a diverse and mature urban forest that underpins the character and amenity of the area.

Increasing levels of development on private land have resulted in a decrease in the number of private trees and limited opportunities for future tree growth. This places an increased importance on the inclusion of canopy trees in new developments and growing large canopy trees on public land.

The Draft Urban Forest Strategy has been developed to help protect and enhance the urban forest and provides clear direction for Council and the community on tree management in both the public and private realm.

This survey is now closed.
