Have Your Say - Brimbank Trees!

Have Your Say - Brimbank Trees!

We want to understand how you feel and relate to trees. 

Our goal is for Brimbank to be a ‘liveable community’. We want to provide access to more trees, quality green open spaces that are accessible, cool and well-maintained. The following strategies help us achieve this goal:

Implementing these strategies increases tree canopy cover across our municipality. Canopy cover in the west is less than 10 percent compared to other areas in Melbourne which range from 15 percent to 25 percent.

A canopy cover of around 30 percent makes a big difference during heatwaves. It cools the city and mitigates the heat island effects.

We've prepared ten questions seeking feedback from you about trees and how we can partner with you to create a greener municipality.

How to Provide Feedback

If you prefer, you can request a hard copy form by emailing info@brimbank.vic.gov.au (Att: Landscape Architect). 

What Happens Next?

Your feedback will be used in the first draft of the Municipal Tree Policy.
