Global review of incentive schemes for the retention and successful establishment of trees on private urban land (NY18002)
What’s it all about?
This investment is looking at ways to support local community areas in retaining existing trees, replacing removed trees and encouraging the planting of new trees on private land – such as in commercial areas, light industrial precincts, and residential gardens. The researchers are looking at different approaches local government authorities across the world use to influence trees in private spaces, from legal protections through to rebate incentive schemes. They will gain a better understanding of these mechanisms, their effectiveness, and their suitability for Australian communities to consider.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Nursery Fund
