Winter tree planting!
More than 68,000 native plants and 1,300 trees will be planted across the City this winter - making it our biggest planting season to date. The focus will be on increasing the tree canopy in the Bayswater industrial area, with semi-advanced trees being planted on verges to provide shade, create more attractive streetscapes and bring much needed greenery to the area. The City is also partnering with local environmental groups to plant 68,000 native shrubs and seedlings in Lightning Park, Baigup Wetlands, Hillcrest Reserve, Bardon Park, Eric Singleton Bird Sanctuary, and the area surrounding Maylands Lakes.
