In collaboration with Campbelltown City Council, the department commissioned 3 design documents to demonstrate industry best-practice and showcase the methodology, learnings and outcomes of the project.
These documents are intended for use by councils and industry to replicate for tree plantings on streets, reserves and in open spaces.
- 1. Haydon Park investigation study
- 2. Street tree planting design manual
- 3. Copperfield drive technical study
Haydon Park investigation study – Planting trees in stormwater basins: a theoretical case study that tests the impact of tree planting in dual-purpose open space that also functions as a stormwater detention basin.
Investigation study part 1 (8.8 MB, PDF)
Investigation study part 2 (4.1 MB, PDF)
Street tree planting design manual: a how to guide to identify and prioritise streets for tree planting, design considerations and innovative tree planting solutions.
Design manual (10.3 MB, PDF)
Copperfield drive technical study: an example of best-practice design for street trees and integrated water management system. Built works on Copperfield Drive have been installed as a living demonstration of the outcomes of this project.
Technical study (8.1 MB, PDF)
In October 2021, the department held a webinar showcasing three different scales of projects where innovative approaches to using stormwater have been adopted and help provide improved outcomes for trees.
If you missed the session, you can watch the webinar recording.
