Getting to the Root of Tree Planting
The success of tree planting starts at the beginning of a tree’s life and the eventual impact of nursery production decisions may not be seen immediately. The nursery industry is on a journey to refine a standard for landscape trees, ensuring they thrive for centuries in a greener Australia. This began in April 2015 with the introduction of the Australian standard for tree stock for landscape use (AS 2303:2015). Research is currently underway by the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment to evaluate this standard and assess the real-world performance of nursery trees grown for landscaping purposes.
