Five million trees for a greener Sydney by 2030

19 Jun 2018
Description

We're aiming to increase Greater Sydney's tree canopy to 40% by 2030 by planting more trees in streets, parks, bushland areas and yards.

That’s more trees in our streets, parks, backyards, neighbourhoods and schools, so we can grow our tree canopy from 16.8%* to 40% (*source Office of Environment and Heritage, 2011).

More tree canopy means more shade, cooler suburbs (by reducing the heat island effect), more habitats for our wildlife and even an increase in property values.

We need your help. Whether you’re an individual, council, organisation or community group, we want you to plant a tree for the future and make it count today as one of the Five Million.

Thinking of planting a tree on your property? Why not use our Tree Selector as a guide to help find the right tree for your site.
