Classified Tree Register

Council is committed to consulting with the community on the development and implementation of a Classified Tree Register.

The Glen Eira area has many trees that are considered significant to the local community for their historic and heritage value.

A Classified Tree Register is a list of trees within the municipality that are considered significant and warrant protection. These trees may be on public or privately-owned land.

The purpose of the Register is to identify and recognise the importance of significant trees in the Glen Eira area and guide their management and ensure their protection for future generations.

Status

At the 26 September 2018 Council meeting, it was resolved that Council:

  1. notes that community consultation indicates support for tree protection on both public and private land.
  2. commits to developing controls to protect trees on private land.
  3. notes that officers have formed a set of objectives in response to community feedback to protect trees.
  4. requests officers to present a report with options for controls that best protect trees in line with the set of objectives.
