more trees please!
Council has just recommended that the street tree infill programme be continued for another 3 years.
This is a very important programme that has a high level of community support. Nevertheless it is important that council does more work with community members to help them take ownership of the new trees to ensure their survival.
While the contractor is responsible for trees that fail, community members in some areas are working with council to adopt a tree and are helping exisiting and new trees by providing some extra watering.
There are also a number of species that can be negotiated in this programme. So if you would like to see some more species variety, let Council know of your preference.
