Managing our trees is essential for maintaining the health and wellbeing of our community and surrounding environment.
We have over 90,000 street trees in Manningham and countless more throughout our reserves and natural areas. We strive to protect and enhance our tree population to benefit us now and our future generations.
How we manage our trees
Our tree management activities include:
- street tree pruning program
- electric line clearance
- tree planting and maintenance
- tree risk management
- storm response
- tree protection
- urban greening project.
Tree planting program
Each year we plant up to 3000 trees throughout our streets and reserves. Our tree planting program is a critical part of future proofing Manningham against the negative effects of climate change.
Tree planting schedule
Street tree planting is done between May and September each year. Timings may vary to make the most of planting conditions.
Species of trees planted
Manningham has been divided into 18 precincts. Species have been selected based on urban forest principles, biodiversity values, risk, and landscape amenity. The species palette, a selection of native and exotic trees, will establish the long-term character for a street or main road.
