Urban Greening

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.

Council is taking action to improve trees and plants in public spaces. Pick a section below to find out more, including ways you can join in.

We're planting street trees in suburbs that need them most.

You can ask us to plant a tree in a public space, including the footpath in front of your home. Email or call us on (02) 4227 7111 to make a request.

You can help make our city greener by adding and looking after plants on your property.

Visit Wollongong Botanic Garden's Greenplan Nursery on sale days to buy plants and get advice on what to plant.

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.
