(2) No current estimates are available. The most recent audit in 2010-2012 identified approximately 22,000 vacant street tree sites to be prioritised for planting and 17,300 dead trees in streets and parks that required removal and replacement.

(3) Yes. The ‘around 20%’ figure is taken from the LiDAR data that indicates that tree canopy covers 19.18% of all developed land (residential, commercial, urban open space, road reserves).

(4) The “percent canopy” figure was measured using LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) remote sensing methods.

(5) The LiDAR was captured as a one-off.

(6) Tree canopy cover data is available for most but not all of the ACT’s urban area (the 2015 Lidar coverage did not include all of Canberra).

(7) Based on the limited extent of LiDAR data (limited to most but not all of the ACT’s urban area), the average canopy cover percentage across all divisions is 19.18% (land use includes residential, commercial, urban open space and road reserves).

(8) Yes. Please see below table extracted from ACT’s Urban Forest Strategic Guide for the Urban Tree Planting Program June 2016 (Fig.8 Pg. 30).

(9) Data on changes in canopy cover require future data acquisition and analysis via further LiDAR capture.

(10) Yes. (a) The LiDAR data could be used for this purpose. (b) No. The necessary analysis has not been undertaken.
