Urban forest strategy
Outlines our targets to increase the canopy of trees and maximise the economic, social and environmental benefits they can provide.
Trees can provide cleaner air, filtered stormwater and lower city temperatures. They’re an important habitat for animals and make beautiful city streets. Trees can also reduce stress and improve contact with nature.
