Urban Forest Plan roll out continues into West Perth


Following consultation on the Urban Forest Plan, the City continues with the next phase of new street tree planting in West Perth.

One of the priority objectives of the Urban Forest Plan is the delivery of a targeted program of new tree planting to fill gaps in existing street tree planting, within each of the City's neighbourhoods.

As part of implementing the Urban Forest Plan the City of Perth will be planting new street trees in selected streets in West Perth between April and October 2019 with the aim of:

  • Filling gaps within existing street trees
  • Increasing canopy cover by 10% (approximately)
  • Helping to cool streets
  • Improving green links
  • Beautifying city streets
  • Promoting community health and well-being

Further information can be found in the New Street Trees West Perth Information Flyer in the Document Library section of this page.

Urban Forest Plan background

The City of Perth Urban Forest Plan was adopted by Council in September 2016, after a period of public consultation.

An urban forest is broadly defined as the collection of green spaces, trees and other vegetation that grows within an urban area, on both public and private land. It provides a range of social, environmental and economic benefits that enrich the quality of urban life. The Urban Forest Plan sets out a vision, goals and objectives for the future planning, management and expansion of the urban forest to maximise the delivery of these benefits.
