How to Grow an Urban Forest

City of Melbourne, Department of Environment, Land Water and Planning / 202020Vision


This simple and engaging guide presents a ten-step practical approach to help councils identify and overcome some of the common barriers to increase the adoption of green space in urban areas.

Much of the content has been based upon the experiences of the City of Melbourne's Urban Forest Strategy, and acknowledges, that when it comes to political context, resource structure and availability, or stage in the process, every council is different. The guide has been designed with this in mind to make it accessible at a range of stages – from not knowing where to begin, to dealing with an endorsed strategy that has been stalled or shelved for
some reason, to understanding types of measurement tools.
