Under the Urban Forest Strategy, there are ten Precinct Plans that provide detailed information about how planting will occur in local streets to meet the objectives of the strategy. A planting schedule for streets in each precinct has been developed in consultation with the community and is based on:
- Community priorities
- Location and density of vulnerable residents
- Opportunities for new planting
- Hot and very hot streets, as shown in thermal imaging
- Useful Life Expectancy of existing trees
- Existing canopy cover
This dataset shows the anticipated timeframe for tree planting in each street across the City of Melbourne. This timing is provisional and subject to change. The schedule for some streets may be moved forward or delayed by capital works, developments or renewal projects that impact on tree planting or survival.
Tree canopy within City of Melbourne mapped using 2008 aerial photos and LiDAR. The canopy polygons represent actual tree canopy extents on both private and public property across the city. The data is considered accurate for 2011. Changes in tree canopy are expected to have occurred since that time.

The data is considered accurate for 2008. Changes in tree canopy are expected to have occurred since that time.
These polygons represent approximate native soil sub-bases and derived textures based on digitized maps from the Geological Survey of Victoria (c. 1956). Soils are expected to be extensively modified from these types throughout Melbourne due to extensive disturbance, and cut and fill associated with the city's development.
These are points in the city where soils have been sampled at different depths and a soil texture has been assigned. Location represents the park and sample number. 0_400 refers to the depth from surface (0) to 400 mm. 400_700 refers to depth from 400 mm to 700 mm. 700_1000 refers to depth from 700 mm to 1000 mm
The City of Melbourne maintains more than 70,000 trees. This dataset details the location, species and lifespan of Melbourne's urban forest by precinct.
