The Million Trees Program
The million trees program was adopted in 2008 and aims to plant one million trees and shrubs within the City by 2025. The ‘million trees’ consists of a mixture of native and introduced species of different vegetation types, including trees and large shrubs, but also some small shrubs and ground covers. The City has currently planted 655,600 trees and shrubs so far.
The 2017 planting season marked the midpoint of the program, and was the City's best year yet with 137,412 trees and shrubs planted.
