Maximise the health and sustainability of the city’s urban trees and forests and the benefits we receive from them.
Trim trees and shrubs overhanging boundaries to a minimum height of 2.5 metres above the footpath and berm (grassed area) and 5 metres above the road.
Vegetation growing through fences or hedges should be trimmed back to the property boundary line.
Check the ecosystem map to see what kind of native plants are best suited to where you live.
Trees have a life expectancy ranging from a few years to decades, centuries or even millennia.
The location of the base of a tree or shrub defines who is responsible for maintaining it.
Our long-term vision to maximise the health and sustainability of urban trees and forests.
