Currently under contract with consultation to commence in 2024

The Wingecarribee Street Tree Master Plan 2016 was developed to ensure that the on going management of our street trees occur in a manner that is reflective of the needs of local residents. The Master Plan considers the collective ecological, environmental, economic, cultural and social contributions of Wingecarribee’s street trees.

It is now time to renew the Master plan and consultation planned for the near future. The objective of the Master Plan is to provide a sustainable and strategic framework for Wingecarribee Shire Council. The Master Plan will work to ensure appropriate street tree planning, maintenance, enhancement and reinforcement of Wingecarribee’s ongoing commitment to the protection and planting of street trees.

Through the implementation of this Master Plan, Council will continue to provide a population of street trees that beautify and define our urban environment today and into the future.

    Street trees beautify our region and encourage our wonderful birdlife. Autumn colours and spring blooms, bring joy to residents and visitors. It is however important council plans for the future, and plants trees that are appropriate for the street that they are planted in. In the past this didn't seem to be the case and residents are left to deal with the consequences. I live in a small cul de sac where plane trees were planted long ago. The one in front of my home is sizeable and I am told, has much growth to go. It would be a beautiful tree in a different setting but is not appropriate for where it is. So I ask....plan for the present and the future

    An update on what has been achieved regarding the planting of Street Trees since 2016 would be appreciated e.g. how many trees have been planted and where, have the trees survived and thrived, have certain species fared better than others, how successfully have the objectives been met.

    I have heard that planning for street trees has excluded eucalypts. Is this true? I would wish eucalypts to be included. Mallees, in particular, seem very appropriate. The local branch of the Society for Growing Australian Plants could give helpful advice.

    Thank you for your message, Native trees have not been excluded from the planning of street trees. A mixture of native and exotic trees make up our urban and rural canopy coverage.

    I would suggest that the main purpose of street trees is to provide shade to cool the asphalt and concrete in summer, then to beautify our urban areas. Has this been taken into consideration?

    Thank you for your message, we do agree and it certainly is the main purpose for consideration and is already written in to the current Street Tree Master Plan document.

    Streetscaping is one of the features that sets our shire apart from others, the beauty, the quality of air, the habitats they support, are all a wealth for our shire. I think a gentle reminder via the radio once or twice a year would remind residents about the important role these features play in our community.
