The Town of Cambridge is now seeking your feedback for the Urban Forest Strategy(PDF, 6MB).
The intention of the strategy is to provide a number of actions which both Council and the greater community can do to increase our urban forest canopy cover. Canopy cover has reduced in areas including brownfield development sites within the Town such as Parkside Walk.
Increases in local canopy cover is directly related to increased mental wellness, improved physical health, increases property values and reductions in the heat island effect. Studies have also shown increased tree canopy cover in fact reduces damage to buildings during significant storm events including cyclones.
