Urban Forest Strategy

The Draft Urban Forest Strategy will be released for advertising in May 2018.

Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale Bushland

What do you think about trees?

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.

Thank you to everyone who completed the survey that sought your thoughts on some of the values, issues and opportunities for the creation of the Shire's Urban Forest.

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.
