Urban Forest Strategy

Urban Forest Strategy (PDF)The purpose of the Marrickville Urban Forest Strategy is to establish Council's commitment to the holistic management of Marrickville's urban forest. It recognizes the urban forest as an essential, living infrastructure asset and resource that provides a wide range of social, environmental and economic benefits.

It aims to:

  • Recognise and acknowledge the urban forest as a vital contributor to the social, ecological and economic health and well-being of Marrickville and its citizens
  • Maximise and perpetuate the capacity of Marrickville's urban forest to provide social, ecological, economic and amenity benefits
  • Sustain and increase Marrickville's urban forest on an intergenerational life cycle basis

The Marrickville Urban Forest Strategy is due for review during 2016–2017.
