Proposed Tree Translocation Protocol

The Tree Translocation Protocol provides a framework to guide policy decisions in highway projects, aimed at a rational, sustainable, and cost-effective tree translocation process. Building on the 2015 Green Highways Policy, it brings together national and international best practices on translocation that outline road designs in harmony with the general landscape, factoring unique features of each project as well as of the trees along the proposed route. Among other things, this Protocol also details parameters to identify Old & Valuable Trees (OVT), in line with their heritage and amenity values.
