STOP the tree carnage

STOP the tree carnage

Like us, you may be incensed by the decline in urban canopy cover and green space across Sydney, such as the continuing tree carnage around Moore Park.

Often the result of poor planning for major infrastructure projects that are funded by the Federal Government without sufficient economic analysis, we are now calling on the Federal Government to show national leadership to ensure we have liveable, sustainable and resilient communities.  Not to do so has enormous implications on the public purse and wellbeing of our communities and future generations.

Like us, you may be incensed by the decline in urban canopy cover and green space across Sydney, such as the continuing tree carnage around Moore Park.

Often the result of poor planning for major infrastructure projects that are funded by the Federal Government without sufficient economic analysis, we are now calling on the Federal Government to show national leadership to ensure we have liveable, sustainable and resilient communities.  Not to do so has enormous implications on the public purse and wellbeing of our communities and future generations.

We invite you to send a message to your local MP to take action to address public concerns. Specifically we are asking for the Federal Government to:

  • Introduce robust legislation at a Federal level that protects, values and properly measures and accounts for our tree canopies, vegetation and green spaces across the nation – including making reference to NSW’s recently introduced biodiversity reforms which are not working and need urgent review;
  • Establish a best practice cost benefit analysis for use that takes account of the impact on mental health and wellbeing; and
  • Define a best practice offset policy that properly measures baseline data.
