Classified Tree Register

We are committed to getting your feedback on a Classified Tree Register, which would protect significant trees.

There are many trees in Glen Eira that have significant historic and heritage value. A Classified Tree Register is a list of trees within the city that warrant protection. The register aims to identify and manage significant trees, ensuring their protection for future generations.

Trees on the register can be on public or privately-owned land.

Current status

At the Council meeting on 26 September 2018, we:

  • noted that community consultation shows support for tree protection on public and private land
  • committed to developing controls to protect trees on private land
  • noted that officers have a set of objectives in response to community feedback
  • asked officers to report on possible controls to protect trees.
