Tree Management and Preservation

Trees provide many environmental, cultural, health and aesthetic benefits to people and the environment. Council focuses on maintaining a viable and healthy tree population.

Kogarah City Council's tree management goal is to work with the community to preserve the natural character of the area and enrich the natural environment for everyone's benefit.
