Tree Management Plan


Ballarat has a wide diversity of trees in terms of species, age, size and density. The trees are an essential part of the urban and rural fabric, providing economic, social and ecological benefits.

The Tree Management Plan aims to:

  • provide a clear and consistent approach to managing risks associated with tree assets and issues.
  • assist City of Ballarat staff in determining priorities for tree programs and works.
  • support Ballarat Council’s focus on adopting an urban forest management approach and achieve a 40% canopy cover by 2040
