Row of tree trunksCouncil manages thousands of local trees in streets, parks, gardens and natural areas.

Trees are the most important and highly visible asset within Yarra's parks, gardens and streets. They not only improve the liveability of Yarra, but characterise the place and provide enjoyment for people. Many of the Yarra's trees are culturally important and some have heritage significance. Council is committed to managing and protecting local trees and has developed policies and procedures to ensure this is achieved.

Customer Service GuaranteeCouncil has a Customer Service Guarantee with 64 specific commitments aimed at improving customer service for the Yarra community. Read more about our commitments for trees in the Customer Service Guarantee.
