Why cities should preserve their biggest assets: trees

Why cities should preserve their biggest assets: trees

With high temperatures, specially in cities, native trees (Eucalyptus in priority) are at high risk of falling with dire consequences for the environment and the population.

Having healthy trees should be a priority for Australia cities for a better liveability and the benefits are numerous as per graphic below.

Furthermore, as established by Urban tree valuation from the City of Melbourne, average tree value is $50,000. This number seems high but in fact quite low when we look at all the cost associated with trees as well as their benefits. Removing a dead mature tree is also a high cost so it is in the best interest to make sure the cities monitor and preserve their trees.
