A ct tree Register
Registration Criteria that presently apply, other criteria may apply after further assessment.
(1) Natural or cultural heritage value
The object of this value is to identify trees that are of particular importance to the community due to their intrinsic heritage values.
A tree may be considered to be of natural or cultural heritage value when it is:
(a) associated with a significant public figure or important historical event; or
(b) of high cultural heritage value to the community or cultural group, including trees associated with aboriginal heritage and culture; or
(c) associated with a heritage nominated place and representative of that same historic period.
(2) Landscape and aesthetic value
The object of this value is to identify trees that are of particular importance to the community due to their substantial contribution to the surrounding landscape.
A tree may be considered to be of landscape and aesthetic value if it is situated in a prominent location when viewed from a public place and it:
(b) represents an outstanding example of the species, including age, size or habit; or
(c) is an exceptional example of a locally native species that reached maturity prior to urban development in its immediate vicinity.
Statement against the Criteria
Trees covered by the Heritage Act 2004 are to be transferred to the Tree Register as a legislative requirement. The individual species within the Vernon Circle reserve have all been cited in the Heritage register entry (2002 City Hill) as a result the trees are considered as a group planting. The formal plantings on City Hill are an integral part of the Griffin plan and shall be preserved in their entirety. The Geometric pattern which is created by the plantings is the primary feature of the landscape and is integral to the original design. The association with TGC Weston provides a historical link. The aesthetic component, which the trees provide is an important part of green space and provides a contrast to the build environment of Canberra’s city centre.
