The delivery of tree maintenance and related services can have a major impact on the success of urban forest strategies and policies that a Council may have.

Local government can’t do it alone, we often need to form and maintain good relationships with contractors and consultants to get the outcomes we need.

This presentation explores strategies for building lasting, productive relationships with service providers, how to empower a contractor to deliver on policy objectives whilst
also managing risk, and the strategies that can be used when writing specifications to get the most from your tree management budget.
