Tree Management

The Tree Management Framework and Tree Management Policy have been developed to meet the changing nature of tree management principles in a strategic and sustainable way.

This includes a tree character vision for the city and tree management principles, which drive directions for trees in parks, reserves and streets.

The strategy and implementation of the framework and policy will assist the City of Marion to achieve distinctive tree characters across the city and to implement the principles in the Tree Management Policy.


Tree Management Framework

The Tree Management Framework reflects Council's strategic direction for all trees on Council land including streets, parks and reserves. 

The framework assists the City of Marion to guide the provision and management of these trees and appropriately 'green' the city to enhance biodiversity and habitat value over time, which will ultimately enhance the appeal and value of residential areas and the overall liveability of the city.
