Draft Urban Forest Strategy

The City of South Perth is known for its tree-lined streets, green spaces, iconic foreshore and bushland reserves. Our urban forest is made up of nearly 400 hectares of trees and shrubs on public and private properties throughout the City.

Over the last 30 years, canopy cover has increased by 20 per cent on public property and decreased by 20 per cent on private property.

A Draft Urban Forest Strategy has been developed to identify opportunities and highlight the pressures facing the urban forest into the future.

The feedback period has now closed. The comments received will inform the final plan, which will be presented to Council for adoption in October 2017.
