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 end of 2022. This is part of a broader commitment to plant five million trees by 2030.
The Greener Neighbourhoods program empowers councils to protect and enhance tree canopy to create cooler, shadier neighbourhoods. The program provides updated data, financial support and policy guidance to councils to support strategic approaches to urban forest management.
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.
