Urban Forest Strategy - $1m
The Town’s Urban Forest Strategy Implementation Action Plan (UFS IAP) was developed in close consultation with community groups which highlighted a number of priorities including mass tree plantings.
The UFS IAP represents the largest item in the budget at $1m. The strategy sets an ambitious target to increase the Town’s tree canopy cover from 10 per cent to 20 per cent which will require the planting of around 256,000 trees. The Town is already making headway towards this target with recent tree plantings at Carlisle reserve and tree giveaways.
