The Urban Greening Strategy will be a key document that provides the plan which draws together the current state of Council’s urban forest.


Urban greening is the conservation, restoration, or creation of green infrastructure, including trees and vegetation in and around urban areas that benefits people, nature, fauna, our economy, and the soils and water needed to support it and contributes to the health of the ecosystem.

The Urban Greening Strategy will guide how Council manages and enhances its urban forest into the future. It sets out clear targets and directions on how we can protect the existing public and private tree canopy and do more to increase our canopy coverage and urban forest extents.
