With a new Tree Policy in Townsville, you can make moving, living and belonging in the city safer, greener, and more enjoyable for the community.

Townsville City Council recognises the condition and quality of public spaces is a highly valued liveability attribute for the Townville community. Council’s goal is to prioritise the delivery of quality public spaces and continuously improve the condition of public spaces, with a focus on providing for and valuing the city’s green infrastructure. Underpinning this was the recent adoption of a Public Tree Management Policy to guide and inform the process around managing trees that form the public tree network.

Reporting to the Team Manager Open Spaces, you will provide strategic guidance and technical advice on tree management and assessment processes including risk assessment, tree identification, pest and disease identification and planting. You will be able to make the role your own and actively take the reins of something that will continue to underpin the way Council strives to manage it’s 200,000 trees and the required maintenance work, with a number of these recognized as ‘significant’. Whilst there is no physical component to the role you will have oversight of this area and supervise some of the work going on and pass on your knowledge to trainees.

Council is open to candidates either working in LG as an Arborist or alternatively someone working as a Contractor who is keen to focus on the technical aspects of arboriculture without having the physical aspects often associated. Being empathic around the passion of the community and being comfortable interacting with them and responding to requests will be an essential component of the position. Renowned as a strong leader, you may be currently working at this level or keen to ‘step up’ and leverage your career in Arboriculture.

Applications will close at 10pm on Monday 1st August 2022
