The Council regards trees as being highly desirable and integral to the urban landscape, providing a range of social, environmental and economic advantages.
As such they are considered to be a primary part of the public landscape amenity affecting and benefiting all residents within a locality.
Property values are increased by the presence of trees by creating a "leafy suburb".
Aesthetically, trees make an important contribution to the character or amenity of the local area and form a notable visual element in the landscape.
Trees improve our quality of life by providing a sense of peacefulness, restfulness, serenity and tranquillity as a result of creating a more natural and less artificial environment.
