Brisbane City Council


Brisbane’s urban forest includes all trees and other vegetation, on public and private land. The trees that make up Brisbane’s urban forest contribute to our subtropical landscape character and biodiversity.

Future goals and targets to enhance and sustain our urban forest are to:

  • increase tree shade cover to 50% for footpaths and bikeways in residential areas by 2031
  • increase shade at bus stops
  • transform major entry roads to the city into subtropical boulevards.
