Registration Criteria that presently apply, other criteria may apply after further assessment.

(1) Natural or cultural heritage value

The object of this value is to identify trees that are of particular importance to the community due to their intrinsic heritage values.

A tree may be considered to be of natural or cultural heritage value when it is:

(a) associated with a significant public figure or important historical event; or

(b) of high cultural heritage value to the community or cultural group, including trees associated with aboriginal heritage and culture; or

(c) associated with a heritage nominated place and representative of that same historic period.

(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

The trees are recognised for their cultural heritage value on account of their association with a heritage nominated place (Manuka Pool and Telopea Park) and are representative of that same historic period. The trees are believed to have been planted as part of the original landscaping of Manuka Pool in 1930.

They are also recognised for their high landscape and aesthetic value. They contribute greatly to the surrounding landscape due to their form, size and age. They create a frame for the entrance to the Manuka Pool and compliment the historic nature of the building and surrounding landscapes.
