Trees Register on Public Land

In 2012 Council adopted a 'Register of Significant Trees on Public land'. The aim of this Register is to increase awareness of these iconic trees amongst Council staff, contractors, external agencies and the community. A greater appreciation for these trees will result in added protection, particularly with regards to infrastructure upgrades, developments and capital works projects. The trees were assessed using the National Trust of Victoria's 12 significance criteria.

The criteria are:

  • Horticultural or genetic value
  • Location or landscape context
  • Rare or localised
  • Particularly old
  • Outstanding size
  • Aesthetic value
  • Curious growth form
  • Historic value
  • Aboriginal culture
  • Outstanding example of a species
  • Remnant
  • Outstanding habitat value

Council welcomes the nomination of additional trees. The trees can be located on any land that is owned or managed by Council. This includes parks, natural reserves, nature strips, foreshore etc.

Trees located on other land will not be included. Any trees nominated will be assessed by Council's Vegetation Protection Officer and those considered worthy of inclusion will be added to the Register.
