What TREENET Is About
TREENET is an Independent Non-profit OrganisationDedicated to Improving the Urban Forest
Urban Forest Advocacy
TREENET advocates and promotes the values of the urban forest; a vast array of not only environmental benefits, but also for physical, social and mental health and well-being.
TREENET enhances the body of knowledge that exists about street trees.
It's always important to take regular checks about past, current and new ideas that best inform our urban forest management.
TREENET fosters research, facilitates street tree trials & distributes resulting information to those who may find it useful. Having access to research underpinned by solid data is deemed crucial. Translating research into practical application is part of the quest.
TREENET facilitates conversations and encourages co-operation and the free exchange of information between individuals and organisations.
TREENET shares information through our annual Symposium where the live presentations and demonstrations are captured in High Definition videos and all past & current resources are easily searched & freely accessible on our TREENET website.
TREENET seeks up-to-date knowledge about skills and practices. Those committed to conserving and improving the urban forest can learn much or share much from their experiences at a local, state, national or international level.
In September every year in Adelaide, the hottest urban forest issues are presented by Australia’s leading educators, researchers, and practitioners at the TREENET Symposium.
The 2021 Symposium theme was "Green is the New Gold: Money does grow on trees". All resources from this Symposium will be available from January 1, 2022.
