Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the plans for Round 2 of planting for our Urban Canopy Program. These plans have been updated following community feedback received from April to June 2021. Review the updated plans below.

2020 tree planting programs
The City of Canada Bay aims to plant 1,500 new trees every year as part of our Urban Canopy Program, which helps to support our community to live in vibrant, resilient places that connect people. Urban canopies not only help keep streets cooler, the trees also remove carbon, produce more oxygen, provide habitat and filter stormwater and air pollution as well. A bonus to this is that street tree canopies are beautiful and add charm to our streets.
