Have your say on Classified Tree Register
Published on 20 November 2017
Glen Eira City Council is consulting with the community on the implementation of a Classified Tree Register.
The Register could contain a list of trees within the municipality that are considered significant and warrant protection. These trees may be on public or privately-owned land.
A commitment in the Glen Eira Council and Community Plan 2017−2021 is to consult with the community on the implementation of a Register.
We are asking the community the following questions to determine whether a Classified Tree Register should be implemented and, if so, what type of trees should be included on the Register.
- Should Council protect significant trees in Glen Eira?
- What do you consider to be a ‘significant’ tree?
- Should Council protect significant trees through a Tree Register? If not, what other control should be used?
- What do you believe the purpose of a Tree Register should be?
- Should Council protect Council-owned trees as well as private?
- What type of trees should be protected? Eg. indigenous?
- How should a tree be assessed as being worthy of protection?
- What does it mean having a tree on the Tree Register?
- Would you object to a tree on your land being included on the Tree Register?
- Would you object to your neighbour’s tree being included on the Tree Register?
