Street trees are one of Marrickville's most important natural assets. The Street Tree Master Plan 2014 recognises the collective ecological, environmental, economic, cultural and social contributions of Marrickville’s street trees. The principle of the Street Tree Master Plan is to "increase the urban tree canopy through sustainable new and replacement tree plantings and maintain street trees throughout the local area" as outlined in Marrickville Council's Community Strategic Plan.
This Master Plan is a guide to aid in the maintenance and future provision of street trees across the entire municipality. The objective of this Master Plan is to provide a sustainable and strategic framework that is used for the management of Marrickville's street tree canopy. The Plan will also contribute to the collective urban forest, for the benefit of all, through good street tree planning, maintenance, enhancement and reinforcing Marrickville's ongoing commitment to the protection of trees.
With implementation of this Master Plan, Marrickville will continue to provide a population of healthy street trees which will beautify and define our urban environment today and become an important legacy for future generations.

This section of the Street Tree Master Plan provides the main guide for future tree planting in Council's streets. The precinct approach addresses local issues and provides appropriate treatments for each precinct on an individual street by street basis.
The design objectives for each precinct are outlined, the precinct conditions are described, and the nominated tree species have been provided for each street.
