Transport recognises the value the North Sydney community places on its natural landscapes, heritage features and open space.
We are working with the local community, stakeholders and North Sydney Council to determine the best outcomes for replacement tree species, sizes and locations.
Under the planning approval conditions for the project, trees will be replaced at a ratio of two to one along the project area, with a net increase in tree canopy coverage.
Planning conditions define trees as ‘a long lived woody perennial plant greater than (or usually greater than) three metres in height with one or relatively few main stems or trunks’.
The Tree Replacement Strategy will include options for replacing trees in the North Sydney area in line with the planning conditions. These conditions mean that at the end of the project, there will be more trees in North Sydney and other areas than there were before.
