Tree Asset and Maintenance Management Plan 2018-2021

Street trees are a reminder within urban development of the importance of the natural environment and the impact we may have on the environment and the amenity in which we live. We currently maintain 9,400 roadside and parkland trees, of which 1,479 are annually inspected and pruned when required for power line clearance.

Our management and maintenance programs are designed to preserve and care for sick or damaged trees and vegetation, with removal being the last resort if no other option is available. We treat 786 elm trees for elm leaf beetle and mulch the root zones of stressed trees where possible.

The tree asset management plan guides the Council on how to preserve, enhance and maintain street trees while maximising the contribution of trees to the amenity of our Rural City.
