​Street Trees

The City of Stirling is committed to planting one million trees by 2025 to try and combat the decreasing canopy cover.  Since 2012 the City has lost the amount of tree canopy to cover 50 cricket pitches, which makes looking after trees throughout the City more important than ever.


Benefits of Street Trees

  • Provide habitat for birds and other wildlife
  • Presence of trees on verges increase property values in Perth by $16,889 on average.
  • Reduce heating and cooling costs by 12 to 15% per year
  • Street trees are estimated to cover 3.4% (3.57 km2) of the City area and provide 12.65 km2 of leaf area. This is equivalent to more than 15,800,000 beach umbrellas
