Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the draft Urban Tree Canopy Strategy 2024 -2040

Urban trees and shrubs play a significant role in creating liveable neighbourhoods and increasing the health and wellbeing of communities and our environment.

Nillumbik’s draft Urban Tree Canopy Strategy provides a fifteen-year strategic framework that will help us achieve our vision to protect and enhance our urban tree canopy.
