About Trees

There is no precise definition of what a tree is, but typically a tree is defined as a large plant, usually with a single stem or trunk (but not always), that is mainly made up of wood and continues to grow in girth as it ages. Large palms are also generally regarded and managed as trees.


Trees are critical parts of our community fabric that bring many benefits -

 Reducing greenhouse emissions by sheltering nearby buildings from sun and wind

 Reducing the urban heat island effect in a time of climate change to improve liveability and comfort

 Improving air quality for our atmosphere and water quality for our waterways and bays

 Sequestering carbon from the atmosphere to help prevent climate change

 Increasing habitat to support biodiversity

 Providing food such as fruits, nuts, spices and olives

 Increasing the life of infrastructure through weather protection

 Improving the visual amenity of streetscapes and neighbourhoods

 Increasing real estate value of properties with tree lined streets

 Improving the health of residents by encouraging them to walk and be more active
