URBAN FOREST SURVEY FOR COUNCILS


The WPW is a five-year collaborative project between Hort Innovation Australia, Macquarie University, Western Sydney University, NSW Environment, Energy and Science and 202020Vision that aims to facilitate sustainable green cities by developing resilient urban green space in Australia.

The WPW Module 2 "Successes and failures" team are collecting data to understand what factors contribute to successful and unsuccessful urban plantings. From this research, we will be able to share our knowledge and learnings with practitioners to inform the establishment of green infrastructure that will survive and thrive across Australia into the future.

A key component of the WPW Module 2 "Successes and failures" project is to identify the type of data collected in urban tree inventories in Australia.

Urban tree inventories are lists of tree species occurring within a prescribed area. In many cases, individual trees are recorded with their location and attributes, along with the planting details and context. Tree inventories may form part of an asset management system, and be incorporated into spatial (GIS) systems, such that management actions and changes in status can be recorded. Potential causes of failure or reasons for removal may also be recorded. Dynamically managed urban tree inventories can be valuable in informing future planting and management decisions to enhance the function and sustainability of green cities.

All information collected will be kept confidential by the WPW project, but the wider findings will be used to develop a strategy for better practice across Australia.
