(Question No 91)
Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 26 February 2009:
(1) How many trees were placed on the tree register in 2008.
(2) How does the figure in part (1) compare to the number of trees placed on the tree register in 2007.
Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
1. In 2008, significant work was undertaken to transfer a number of trees listed on heritage registered sites into the Tree Register. That process resulted in 347 heritage listed sites being incorporated into the register. Following further investigation of those sites, the Tree Register now contains 41 sites identifying in some instances, more than one potentially registerable tree. A further process of fully identifying and assessing individual trees on each site is ongoing work being undertaken by the Tree Protection Unit.
2. No trees were entered onto the Tree Register in 2007. All regulated trees were protected under the Tree Protection Act in 2007.
