To create a sustainable, liveable and cool Greater Sydney, we need trees and green cover. More trees mean more shade, cleaner air and more beautiful places to live.
The Greening our City Premier’s Priority aims to increase the tree canopy and green cover across Greater Sydney by planting one million trees by 2022. This is part of a broader commitment to plant five million trees by 2030.
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 – register your tree. A greener Sydney is one we can all share and enjoy.
We've reached half a million trees!
“New trees today mean more healthy shaded public spaces and beautiful tree-lined streets for communities to enjoy now and for years to come.” Rob Stokes, Minister for Planning and Public Spaces.
Partnerships play an important role in creating healthier and more resilient communities by making greener places and great public spaces.
We're supporting local councils to enhance Sydney's tree canopy through new tree planting projects. The 2021 Grant Program is now open.
Join your community in greening your local area and register any trees, big or small, that you plant.

NSW Government agencies have made a collaborative commitment to deliver the Greening our City Premier's Priority.
In March 2021, Minister Rob Stokes planted the 500,000th registered tree in Greater Sydney under the Greening our City program. We’re well on track to meeting the Premier’s Priorities commitment to plant one million trees by 2022.
