Creating Canopies in Greater Sydney is a partnership between GSLN and Landcare NSW as part of the NSW Premier’s Greening our City Priority. We have been funded to plant 100,000 trees over the next two and a half years (until October 2022) on both public and private lands. We are interested in talking to you about helping us plant these trees, to Create Canopies and cool Sydney.
Coordination, local provenance tubestock tree species and planting materials, will be provided for FREE as part of this project PLUS expertise and support with getting the right trees in the ground. What we need from you are sites and in some cases to help in their maintenance.
Below is an Expression of Interest form for landholders to register their site for free trees and Landcare support. To be eligible to participate you must,
- – have land in one of the Sydney LGA’s with less than 30% canopy cover – see list here,
- – accommodate a minimum of 100 new trees (between now and 2022) on your land,
- – assist with site preparation and appropriate maintenance activities to improve survival of the trees,
- – provide safe access to Landcare for up to 12 months to monitor and help with tree survival.
