Street Tree Renewal Program
The City of Salisbury’s Tree Management Policy provides strategic direction and guidance for the management of trees under the care, control and management of Council.
The Street Tree Renewal Program is how Council reviews and renews trees across the City. The program contributes to a greener environment and is one of the few capital investments that councils can make that appreciate in value over time.
The program aims to deliver an even distribution of street trees, with a wide variety of species and age classes across our City. To achieve this aim, careful planning and selection of the streets to be included in the program each year is undertaken, and it is envisaged that streetscapes be renewed on a 50-year lifecycle
The program concentrates on streets within the City area that have a high number of unsuitable trees specimens which are diseased, dying, dead or where large trees are planted too close together, or where existing trees have had a significant detrimental impact on infrastructure. The program also extends to include streets with few or no existing street trees, and new developments where funds have been received from a developer in lieu of undertaking the work themselves.
Council’s Street Tree Renewal Program is in process for 2022/23 program. Residents and property owners of the streets were consulted in March 2022, including the opportunity to vote for the species to be planted.
The results of consultation for each street are available to see via the links below.

Frequently Asked Questions
A number of criteria is analysed for a street to be included in the program including; condition of the trees, type of street, any infrastructure damage caused by trees, and the density of plantings.
All trees have their health, structure, location and species types assessed and are either chosen for retention or renewal. The 'Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016' may also prevent some trees from being removed if they are deemed a ‘Significant’ or ‘Regulated’ tree.
The Streetscape Renewal Program aims to renew about 1,000 trees each year. The program aims to plant one tree per standard street frontage to form a uniform, attractive streetscape.
In some situations, residents on the street scheduled for renewal are given opportunity to participate in a public consultation, which considers a selection of replacement tree species and allows feedback on the trees to be removed or retained.
Tree species selection is undertaken as part of the public consultation process. A selection of species is presented to residents and generally one species is chosen for the street. Residents are also informed if their street contains a species that Council wishes to retain. The aim is to have consistent streetscapes with a variety of suitable species used across the City.
Tree removals usually occur in the drier summer months with replanting occurring in the cooler / wetter months from May onwards.
No. In order to deliver an even distribution of canopy cover across the city it is City of Salisbury's policy to plant at least one tree per property frontage, where possible. City of Salisbury will work with residents to identify a suitable location for new trees if requested.
