A CULTURAL HERITAGE MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR THE PRESERVATION OF JACARANDA TREES IN THE CITY OF JOHANNESBURG AND THE CITY OF TSHWANE, GAUTENG PROVINCE
This document entails a cultural heritage resources management plan for Jacaranda trees in Gauteng, specifically street trees in the City of Johannesburg and the City of Tshwane. Although these trees are not indigenous, it has become part of the cultural streetscapes in these two cities and has therefore obtained cultural significance.
Management protocols are given. These are the basic conservation and preservation principles to be used in managing cultural resources. Recommendations made in the document are done within the parameters of the National Heritage Resources Act (25 of 1999).
The management plan is an open document meaning that it should be adapted and reassessed from time to time. A continuation period of at least five years is given. However any developments done before the expiry of the five-year period should be used to re-evaluate the impact on cultural resources and to make the necessary adaptations to the document. The five-year period ends in 2024.
