Read more

To determine the most cost-effective way to balance urban tree canopy and infill outcomes, this study tested policy options for the new Planning and Design Code. The ‘One Tree Policy’ proposed in the new Planning and Design Code is expected to deliver economic, amenity and liveability gains to the Greater Adelaide community valued at $26.4 million (Benefit Cost Ratio 1.7), and is therefore a worthwhile initiative for government to consider.

Read more

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).

The Urban Heat and Tree Mapping Viewer enables the exploration of high-resolution surface temperature data for the Adelaide metropolitan area. The data presented can be used to: - Evaluate how urban infrastructure choices affect the temperature characteristics and extents of urban heat islands, - Help plan activities to mitigate high temperatures in the urban environment, and - Improve the resilience of communities and assets to extreme heat and prolonged heat events.
