Significant Tree Policy


We are committed to increasing tree canopy cover across Brimbank to 30 per cent as defined by our Urban Forest Strategy.

The purpose of our Significant Tree Policy (PDF 226.6KB)  is to:

  • define what a significant tree is for trees on private land in order to establish a Significant Tree Protection Register
  • provide policy directions for Council in accordance with Clause 9 of the General Local Law 2018
  • outline the responsibilities of landowners with a significant tree on their property
  • demonstrate Council’s vision for the establishment of an Urban Forest through the Urban Forest Strategy and Tree Policy.
