Each Urban Forest Precinct Plan contains a planting schedule
which shows when urban forest planting will take place in each
street over the next ten years. The schedule for planting is
based on a range of factors, including community priorities
shared in the local precinct workshops.
The tree planting roadmap shows when each street will be planted
and what the intensity of the planting will be. In some streets,
planting might be minimal due to limited opportunities for new
trees, or in other cases tree planting might occur on a large
scale as part of a streetscape redevelopment. The map also shows
when tree planting is complete in each street.
When prioritising where to plant, it’s important to focus
resources in the locations that need it most. This includes
consideration of where we have opportunities to plant new trees
or replacement trees, where the highest density of vulnerable
people reside, which streets are the hottest in summer and where
low canopy cover exists today. More detail about the factors
considered to develop the planting schedule is included in each
local Precinct Plan.
The timing of tree planting shown on this map reflects the Urban
Forest Precinct Plans and is provisional only. The schedule for
some streets might be brought forward or delayed by capital
works, renewal projects or developments that affect tree
planting or survival. Unforeseen opportunities for streetscape
improvement might also alter scheduled planting.
