Street Tree Planting Program 2015

This project is now completed.

Council will soon plant new street trees across the local area to beautify the streetscape and improve the environment. Street trees are one of Marrickville’s most important natural assets. Like everything in nature, trees have a life cycle and Council needs to plan for their protection, maintenance and renewal. We do this through the Street Tree Master Plan adopted by Council in 2014. Council is committed to maintaining and increasing our urban canopy with new tree plantings that will beautify and improve our urban environment today and for future generations.


Verge Gardens

We will also increase the area around the street trees and residents are invited to plant out and maintain a verge garden. Council can assist with plants - register your interest and Council's Sustainable Streets Officer will get in touch. Alternatively the area under the trees will be mulched to allow the tree roots access to air and water.
