Significant trees

About the Register

The Hobart Interim Planning Scheme 2015 includes a Significant Tree Code. This code is the result of many years spent identifying significant trees within our community, and listing them within a Significant Tree Register. It was done to recognise the use, character and value that garden and street trees contribute to the urban environment.

The list initially mostly comprised of trees that had been included on the National Trust of Australia (Tasmania) Significant Tree Register. Since then additional trees have been added to the list based on nominations from members of the public.

The Tasmanian Planning Commission gave approval on 25 March 2020 to list 79 new significant trees and hedges in the Significant Tree Code of the Hobart Interim Planning Scheme 2015. The amendment (PSA-19-3) can be viewed here.

If you have a question about tree or vegetation removal on private property please phone 03 6238 2715 and ask to speak to a Development Appraisal Planner.

The Significant Tree Register includes photographs of the trees, a location map and a description of their significance.
