Yes Adelaide!

Back to Oz for a moment…

Thanks to Amalie Wright from Landscapology, I came across the City of Adelaide's new streetscape design manual.

There's so much to like about it and nothing more so than the bedrock principle that they will only use trees that will do well in the specific conditions in the location under consideration. No ideological fluff here!

But there's lots more too: like aiming for "continuous canopy", like using trees that are long-lived, like choosing trees that will tolerate climate change...

It's an impressive document. Check it out here.
