(2) Landscape and aesthetic value

The object of this value is to identify trees that are of particular importance to the community due to their substantial contribution to the surrounding landscape.

A tree may be considered to be of landscape and aesthetic value if it is situated in a prominent location when viewed from a public place and it:

(a) contributes significantly to the surrounding landscape based on its overall form, structure, vigour and aesthetic values; or

(b) represents an outstanding example of the species, including age, size or habit; or

(c) is an exceptional example of a locally native species that reached maturity prior to urban development in its immediate vicinity.

Statement against the Criteria

This Ulmus americana gracefully arches over the walkway into the middle courtyard of Allawah Court. The tree has grown in association with the buildings and complements both the built environment and landscape value of the site greatly. The tree is in excellent health and condition with and asymmetrical canopy due to growing in association with the apartment block located next to it. Outstanding aesthetic qualities which are of particular note are the fissured bark, large canopy and foliage colour in autumn.
