Urban Forest Strategy

Be involved in the preparation of an Urban Forest Strategy for the Shire, take the online survey or attend a workshop to have your say!

Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale Bushland

What do you think about trees? Have your say!

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale is in the process of preparing an Urban Forest Strategy to guide the Shire in creating cool, shady, liveable suburbs where healthy, mature trees are retained and new ones are planted.

We are seeking your thoughts on some of the values, issues and opportunities for the creation of the Shire’s Urban Forest. Please take the time to complete this survey; it should only take 5 minutes.

What is an Urban Forest Strategy?

An Urban Forest is all the trees and other plants in an urban area, and an Urban Forest Strategy provides a pathway for achieving and managing the Urban Forest for the benefit of the entire community.

An Urban Forest provides many benefits, which can be economic, environmental or community.
