The aim of our Register of Significant Trees is to draw attention to, and eventually protect, a range of trees with cultural, historical, and biological significance. The Trust has been compiling a Register since 1981 and we now have more than 1,200 entries covering thousands of individual specimens, groups and avenues. Most of the research work is undertaken by experts in a voluntary capacity.
We are now working towards establishing an Australian Register of Significant Trees. Our Register is used as a tool to assist local councils to statutorily protect trees and promote their cultural value to the public. Our work includes advocating and working with local governments including the City of Melbourne, City of Frankston, City of Yarra and City of Casey, in the development and implementation of their own local significant tree registers and translation into statutory controls. These local registers ultimately provide added protection through the Victorian Planning Scheme, and acknowledge the vital part that trees play in our community.
Your donation to this cause will assist the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) in establishing a national Register of Significant Trees.
