  • Urban Forest

    Urban Forest Plan

    An urban forest is broadly defined as the collection of green spaces, trees and other vegetation that grows within an urban area, on both public and private land.

    It provides a range of social, environmental and economic benefits that enrich the quality of urban life.

    The City of Perth adopted its Urban Forest Plan following a period of public consultation. The Plan sets out a clear vision for the future planning, management and expansion of the urban forest.

    Part of Stage 3 has seen the development of a Micro Greening Guide to help introduce small scale planting and greening in privately owned spaces across the city.
