- Australian urban residents divide into seven distinct groups based on attitudes towards trees.
- These groups have different propensities to plant and remove particular types of trees.
- Combined with house turnover, this propensity makes it unlikely for private trees to reach a great age.
- Groups vary in income, education and gender, but not in age, housing tenure or negative experiences of trees.
- Attitudes may not be readily amenable to change, and planners and managers need to address specific attitude groups.
