Trees plan for the future

What’s the value of having a strong network of trees across a region?

Boasting more attractive tree-lined streets, a consistent canopy across the city and pushing Greater Shepparton as a clean, green place seem to be clear benefits of the city’s urban forest strategy.

The document will tonight be considered by councillors, signalling a strategic framework to manage and plan the city’s tree population.

In drafting the strategy, the council embarked on an exhaustive tree audit, counting and assessing the city’s trees — all 28000 across Shepparton, Mooroopna and Tatura — measuring their age and condition.
