Draft Tree Strategy

The draft Tree Strategy Consultation has now closed.

Thank you to our community members who have participated. Your comments and feedback will assist council in finalising the Tree Strategy.

The City of Unley’s urban forest contributes significantly to the City’s character and is integral to making Unley a green, liveable and sustainable City. Trees in the City of Unley have an important function and role to improve the microclimate and liveability of the City, and contribute to its diverse inner urban, heritage, environmental and social character.

Council has developed a new draft Tree Strategy with the purpose of:

  • providing pathways for the control and management of street trees, park trees and private trees within the City of Unley
  • providing a framework that will facilitate the regeneration of the Urban Forest in the City of Unley
  • providing sustainability for the City moving forward
  • aligning with the overall objectives of the Unley Strategic Plan, in particular the Environmental Sustainable Strategy.

Council faces a range of challenges in the strategic management of its tree asset into the future. Specific issues and challenges identified within the strategy include:

  • Ageing tree population
  • Water and soil moisture
  • Climate change
  • Urban heat island and extreme heat
  • Population increase and urban infill
  • Community expectations and resistance to change
  • Tree succession planning and programming
  • Age friendly city.

This strategy has been endorsed by Council for consultation and we invite you to get involved. Please review the Tree Strategy PDF and provide your feedback in one of the following ways:

  • Provide your comments online through this page
  • Send an email with "Draft Tree Strategy" in the subject heading, to pobox1@unley.sa.gov.au
  • Send a written submission to "Draft Tree Strategy", PO Box 1, Unley, 5061

Your feedback will be accepted between now and close of business on Thursday 31 March.
