Street Tree Strategy
The City of Hobart endorsed a Hobart Street Tree Strategy Plan on 24 July 2017. The plan was developed after an audit of street trees and maintenance practises. The plan also included community consultation and a review of contemporary research.
The strategy recommends the development of new policy guidelines, including a five year plan, which involves priority planting of new trees.
The Street Tree Strategy acknowledges that the City’s street trees are:
- A valued contributor to the image and liveability of our City
- Managed as living assets within a framework of policies, procedures and funding
- Planned for, designed, installed and managed using best contemporary practise
- Maintained and protected
- A shared responsibility involving the City of Hobart, other agencies and the community.
