Greening our city

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.
