Supporting Urban Forest Research & Education for Communities and Practitioners
Each year TREENET hosts the National Street Tree Symposium.
At this event the hottest urban forest issues are presented by Australia’s leading educators, researchers and practitioners. With networking opportunities and lessons to be learnt this event is key to improving urban forests across Australia.
There are also opportunities for businesses to support our activities through a Symposium sponsorship package.

Membership helps you to tap into a wealth of resources & participate in professional conversations; to receive complimentary attendance at the two-day, annual TREENET Symposium and achieve a 15% discounted registration for all other colleagues.
What we do
Urban Forest Advocacy
TREENET advocates for wise investment in urban forestry to benefit human, community and environmental health and wellbeing
TREENET seeks knowledge from practitioners and researchers so that it can be applied to benefit communities far and wide through improved urban forestry practices.
TREENET initiates, supports, and shares the results of multi-disciplinary urban forest research. Ongoing projects include tree species trials, Avenues of Honour, and engineering spaces for trees into our streets and cities.
TREENET enhances knowledge by educating and informing practitioners and community champions of developing urban forest management practices, technologies and approaches.
TREENET facilitates conversations and encourages co-operation and the free exchange of information between individuals and organisations.
TREENET shares information through an annual symposium, through publications and videos available free of charge on the Website, social media, and through our monthly newsletter TREENET News.
As a national non-profit organisation we rely on the support of our members and donors.
All donations contribute to our ongoing work promoting the value of urban trees, expanding knowledge in the area and facilitating conversations.
