A collaboration between Greener Spaces Better Places and Living Melbourne
As anyone working in the urban greening space will know all too well, there’s no shortage of information, tools, resources and case studies out there that can help you to plan, manage, protect and enhance green cover.
The trouble is, however, this information is often disparate and incomplete – making it difficult to access the most appropriate tools, resources and best practice examples.
That’s why we've collected these existing materials together – including tools, guides, publications and case studies – and curate the best of them in a single place: right here, in the Urban Greeners' Resource Hub.
This Hub has been curated following consultation with a panel of urban greening implementation, research and technical experts from across Australia, and we gratefully acknowledge their support and input.

The Hort Frontiers Green Cities Fund brings together a range of partners to research and demonstrate the benefits of increased urban greening. With the Australian urban population increasing, and the health benefits of green space becoming clearer, urban developers and governments are becoming increasingly interested in creating greener communities. However, the impact of green space on a range of aspects (for example, perinatal health outcomes and hospital admissions) needs further research. The Green Cities Fund aims to help uncover science-based answers to these questions, helping inform urban development business decisions.
Through research, technology, and education, the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) promotes the professional practice of arboriculture and fosters a greater worldwide awareness of the benefits of trees.
