Adelaide is losing its urban trees at an alarming rate, but a new action plan released today shows how we could turn this damaging trend around.
Prepared by a coalition of community and professional organisations, A Call to Action: Protecting Adelaide’s Tree Canopy offers expert advice and practical solutions to the devastating tree loss across our suburbs.
What’s Happening to Adelaide’s Trees? was launched in June 2020 following mounting community concern about the escalating destruction of Adelaide’s trees on public and private land.
In response, politicians, local councils, for-purpose organisations and community action groups have asked for specific actions that could turn this around.
Conservation SA and the tree coalition have collaborated with a wide range of stakeholders, including developers, conservation groups, ecologists, homeowners concerned about managing big trees, arborists and councils to develop our recommended actions.
The report has already garnered major media attention, including a cover story in April 30's The Advertiser.
