Council considers it important to preserve and manage existing tree plantings to maintain the scenic qualities of the local landscape and streetscape. In addition to their aesthetic qualities, new and replacement plantings are encouraged to establish and maintain green corridors, to increase species diversity, and to reduce the impacts of pollution and climate change.
