Tree planting programs

The City plants around 10,000 new trees each year on street verges, in reserves and in natural areas through a range of planting programs.

Increasing canopy is important because trees help lower summer temperatures by up to 5 degrees, they create habitat for wildlife and improve air quality. Planting street trees on our verges is one of the important ways we are working towards achieving this goal for cool, healthy communities.
