4.10.3 City Tree Strategy

A Dublin City Tree Strategy 2016-2020 has been published and can be viewed on the Dublin City Council website. The strategy will seek to provide a coordinated approach to the management of trees in Dublin City.

The strategy sets out a vision for the management of public trees according to a long term plan. It will also create a greater awareness, and appreciation of this valuable resource within the local authority, other relevant agencies and among the public.

The tree strategy comprises three main sections:

  • Trees in Dublin - outlining the status of trees in Dublin, their current management and available data.
  • Tree Policy – A description of the general and specific policies Dublin City Council has regarding trees and tree work.
  • Action Plan – A framework to implement the tree policy, setting out appropriate objectives and associated actions, responsibilities and target dates for completion.
