In recognition of the value and importance of trees in the urban environment we adopted the Urban Forest Policy in 2008. By integrating the goals and objectives of this policy with our programs and processes and adopting arboricultural best practice, City of Newcastle is acknowledged as a leader in urban tree management.
City of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional country of the Awabakal and Worimi peoples. We respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and continuing relationship with the land, and recognise that they are the proud survivors of more than two hundred years of dispossession. City of Newcastle reiterates its commitment to addressing disadvantages and attaining justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of this community.
