This City of West Torrens initiative provides guidance for Councils on planting trees where the planting space is small or contested. The Design Guideline summarises Council experiences of green and grey infrastructure conflicts, and the relevant local, national and international guidance. It provides six design principles for more, and more successful, street tree planting: ‘the roots get the shoots’ (soil volume is critical); ‘happy trees happy infrastructure’ (risks to infrastructure are reduced if the tree’s needs are met); cost efficient solutions maximise implementation; the right tree for the right location; prioritise trees; and an integrated approach (to produce the best outcomes for all).
