What is the Urban Forest Strategy?
The Urban Forest Strategy (UFS) is a community initiated and driven process endorsed by Council in September 2018. The strategy is a document for communicating the benefits as well as the costs of trees within our Town and outlines a long-term plan to achieve targets.
What is the Town's Urban Forest goal?
Together with a working group, the Strategy has been translated into an Implementation Action Plan (IAP) 2019 - 2024 which sets out how the Town and the community will work together and implement actions to deliver a target of increasing the Town’s tree canopy cover from 10% to 20%.
