Many Councils are developing new policies for their urban forest, with a focus on increasing canopy cover, species diversity and improved tree management.

As Councillors and senior management develop a greater understanding of the importance of trees and a desire to act, it is critical that momentum is maintained for the delivery of policy objectives.
So, where do you start with implementing a policy? And how do you deliver what’s been promised?

This presentation aims to assist Council staff or external contractors by outlining the key considerations of moving from policy to practice; including how to deliver the policy
objectives, setting standards, different delivery model options and the budget bid / cycle.
