We’re adding more plants and trees across our city, and caring for the ones we already have, through our Urban Greening Strategy.
As our city grows, we want to make sure plants and all the benefits they bring aren’t left behind.
Plants and trees cool our towns and cities, reduce pollution and attract investment. They also make us healthier, happier and more productive.

We're planting trees to provide for more shade across local parks and reserves.
Our current priorities are to plant trees for future shade at all playgrounds and in areas that are lacking shade.
