Significant trees are an important part of the natural and cultural landscape of the City of Sydney. They contribute to our City’s heritage and unique character and help make our urban environment healthy and more beautiful.
The City seeks to recognise and protect trees with unique historic, cultural or botanical values. The register identifies trees in our public parks and streets as well as on privately owned properties to help guide their management, so they are protected for future generations.
The City is committed to promoting and protecting these important trees and their landscape settings. They play an important part in Sydney’s past and future and often hold a special place in peoples’ hearts.
We are working to maintain and expand a diverse urban forest, which includes our most significant and historical trees, and continue the proven benefits of plants and trees in a city.
