Street trees in Hobart - we want your input

Consultation has concluded

The Council has commissioned a consultant team led by Inspiring Place landscape architects in collaboration with Arborist, Philip Jackson, to prepare a strategy for establishing and caring for street trees throughout Hobart.

In developing this strategy, we are looking to create a future where our streets are human-scaled, beautiful and tree-lined.

Unlike the City’s ‘grey infrastructure’ which depreciates in value every day, street trees get more valuable as they grow and mature. Street trees provide environmental services but also have social benefits and economic returns significantly in excess of the cost of their establishment and care.


Street Tree Community Forums

Please join us at a community forum for your neighbourhood for your opportunity to provide input into the character of your neighbourhood, with feedback gathered being used to inform the draft Strategy.

If you can’t make it to the forum for your suburb, you are welcome at another forum. If you can’t make it at all, our consultants would still like to hear your thoughts on street trees in your neighbourhood by emailing them at info@inspiringplace.com.au

While this is your chance to be involved in the process of developing the Strategy, there will be a future opportunity for you to participate and provide feedback when the draft Strategy is released next year.

Meanwhile, watch this space as the discussion about trees in our streets unfolds throughout the course of the project.
