Council has decided to introduce a tree policy to provide direction and a consistent approach to the management of Esperance’s street trees. The aim of the street tree policy is to manage the retention and provision of new trees associated with?development. ?

Council considered a draft street tree policy on June 25. The draft policy provides some direction and a consistent approach in terms of pruning, planting/establishment, retention/removal, species selection, and building/planning.

By providing direction on these matters, as it relates to street trees, the management of street trees will be better understood for all including the Council and the community.

The draft street tree policy is available for public comment until August 9.
