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.
Streets prioritised for work in Years 1 – 4 (2014 – 2017) include those:
- Already scheduled for work in the current planting season; or,
- Having a high number of vulnerable people with two or more occurrences of: community priority, very low canopy cover, temperature hot spot or replacements required.
Streets prioritised for work in Years 5 – 7 (2018 – 2020) include those:
- Having a high number of vulnerable people with one occurrence of: community priority, very low canopy cover, temperature hot spot or replacements required.
Streets prioritised for work in Years 8 – 10 (2021 – 2024) include those with only:
- High number of vulnerable people; or a combination of,
- Community priority;
- Very low canopy cover;
- Temperature hot spot; or
- Replacements required.
