    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    Learn how you can help protect ACT's precious urban trees under the new Urban Forest Act (ACT)!

    Living in a leafy, tree-filled community like Canberra gives us a range of benefits. 

    Trees are an integral part of our neighbourhoods. Yet, conflicts about trees can and do arise.

    Come along to our free, one-hour workshop and hear how you can protect trees on both leased and public land under the new Urban Forest Act. Learn:

    • what you can do to protect a tree
    • what actions you can take if you suspect a protected tree is being damaged or impacted upon unlawfully
    • what can happen if someone wants to damage or impact a protected tree on your property, and
    • what decisions about protected trees can be reviewed, either internally or by the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal (ACAT)

    When: 25 June 2024 6.30-7.30pm

    Where: ACT Conservation Council

    Places are limited, secure your spot today!
