Urban Forest Policy

The aim of Frankston’s Urban Forest Policy is to provide a framework for making structured, consistent and environmentally sound decisions for all trees within the municipality’s “Urban Forest”. What is an Urban Forest? The City’s urban forest consists of all trees and vegetation located throughout the municipality irrespective of the tree species, location, origin and ownership. Urban forestry can be described as the science and art of managing trees, forests and natural ecosystems in and around urban communities to maximise the psychological, sociological, economic and aesthetic benefits that trees provide for society.
