Trees are a major asset for our city and play an important role in making Palmerston liveable and attractive, with many social, economic and environmental benefits.
Our urban forest includes trees in parks and along streets within the developed public spaces of the municipality.
We undertake annual programs that maintain, protect and enhance our urban forest, in line with our Preserving our Urban Forest Policy.
Street Tree Maintenance Program
Trees grow quickly in our tropical urban environment and require specialised care and management.
Regular tree maintenance is essential to ensure their longevity, as well as the safety of our road and footpath users.
