The explosion of development activity in the Selwyn District in recent times has seen a corresponding rise in urban plantings, with most new subdivisions displaying extensive new tree planting in streets and reserves. Rural township communities have also been active over the years by establishing new plantings to beautify their surroundings and lessen the effects of extreme weather conditions.

Along with the considerable benefits brought to public land by plantings are some accompanying draw-backs. How do we maximise the former and minimise the latter? The Trees & Vegetation in Selwyn District Management Policy is of great use to committees, community boards, staff, interest groups, elected members and developers, when issues around public planting arise or when decisions on new planting are to be made.
