The trees in and around Canberra’s National Triangle create one of the most impressive treescapes of any capital city, anywhere in the world.

This amazing place is the result of a vision created and planted 100 years ago.

After hearing from over 1,000 people online and face-to-face we developed an issues paper articulating the challenges and opportunities surrounding the NCA’s urban treescape. Around 50 responses were received from various community members and groups.

The Draft Tree Management Policy has now been developed using this feedback and we are seeking input as to its applicability and functionality for the National Capital Authority's future management of its treescape.

Further to the policy, an implementation plan will be developed to articulate the actions that will be required to help the NCA reach its vision, objectives and targets as set out in the Policy. In addition, other key documents will be reviewed in response to this Policy including the National Capital Plan and various Heritage Management Plans. In order to achieve excellence in the care of our special places landscape maintenance plans will also be developed.
