Sunday Trees – 404

404th Sunday Trees
European Tree Series (6)

Vienna, Austria

Around 30 per cent of the area of Vienna is shown as protection areas under the Vienna Nature Preservation Act and the Vienna National Park Act.  The national park is the strictest protection area category.  The largest share is accounted for by landscape protection areas.  Depending on the type of protection area, interventions are either forbidden or only possible to a limited extent.

Trees are tagged for identification. The Vienna Tree Protection Act was first introduced in 1974. It protects all trees in the city which are deciduous or coniferous and have a trunk circumference of at least 40 cm measure data height of 1 metre from its base. The act forbids citizens to “remove, cut, or damage trees by mechanical and chemical means, as well as inhibiting their growth or causing death by other means”. Landowners, tenants and lease holders are responsible for the preservation of the trees on their property. The act obliges individuals to replace any tree that is removed. The number of replacement trees is determined by the size of each tree removed.
