Tree planting season

New trees being planted across Port Melbourne have been well watered in by all the recent rain.
Council has adopted a tree strategy which will guide tree planting to achieve over time
  • an even tree cover across the municipality
  • a balanced distribution of trees of all ages
  • a mix of tree types - to reduce the risk of depending too much on any one type of tree
  • a reasonable process to guide tree replacements, street segment tree renewals and a way to increase greening where trees can't be planted
  • consideration of trees in any future planning especially where higher density development is anticipated
