HELP MARRICKVILLE GROW A STREET TREE MASTERPLAN

Street trees are a major community asset, vital to the health and beauty of our public domain. Like everything in nature, trees have a life cycle and Council needs to plan for their protection, maintenance and renewal.  To do this, Council is developing a Street Masterplan.

How are we doing this?

We gathered information on our community's opinions and values through a random phone survey undertaken by an independent market research company and by an online survey on this site.

Landscape Architects Arterra assessed local streets and used the survey information to complete a Key Findings Report.

We prepared a Community Summary of Key Findings Report and sought your feedback which will be incorporated into the Draft Street Treet Masterplan.

What happens next?

The elected Council will receive the draft Masterplan report which will then be placed on Public Exhibition for 28 days, allowing further community feedback before a final version is adopted by Council.

  • Street Tree Inventory

    over 5 years ago
    3305

    In 2012 Council finalised a street tree condition audit of approximately 22,000 street trees. In addition to species, size, condition and risk assessment, the audit has spatially located each tree, mapped the overhead power line network and infrastructure damage associated with the trees.

    Now Council has commenced work on its first draft Street Tree MasterPlan. The MasterPlan will provide a blueprint for new planting programs that address current tree management issues such as an aging tree population, biodiversity, species selection and risk management across the council area
