2019 Five Million Trees grant

The Five Million Trees grant program supports local councils in Greater Sydney to enhance urban tree canopy by co-funding tree planting projects in public spaces such as streets, parks and plazas.

The grant program was funded under Five Million Trees for Greater Sydney, which is the overarching initiative that is delivering the Premier's Priority.

This first round of grant funding was awarded in early 2019 with thirty-two projects being approved for over $5.3 million across 20 councils in Greater Sydney.
