Where has Council identified that more trees are needed and why?

    Following the recent completion the  of Greening Bayside, which included Council the planting of 800 trees across areas of:

    • Sans Souci
    • Sandringham
    • Brighton Le Sands
    • Kyeemagh
    • Banksmeadow
    • Eastgardens
    • Hillsdale
    • Mascot.

    Stage 2 - Cooling Bayside, Council is seeking to continue greening the suburbs, firmly focusing on planting trees that will provide shading shade to the streets identified as, suitable for walking or cycling between key destination points such as parks and open space, as well as schools and local shops. Council will target suburbs such as:

    •  Arncliffe
    • Banksia
    • Bexley
    • Bardwell Park
    • Carlton
    • Kingsgrove
    • Monterey in the Bayside West and 
    • Botany
    • Eastlakes
    • Roseberry in the Bayside East. 

    Can i have a say about trees in front of my property?

    Council will send pamphlets to residents who's streets have been selected for receiving trees and invite them to provide feedback on whether they wish or do not wish to receive a tree. At this stage Council will also engage those residents who may be keen to look after their own tree in front of their property. 

    Once Council is finalising its Concept Design Plans, we will send an official letter to advise those residents who have participated in the discussions on either not receiving a tree or receiving one and maintenance regime that will be applicable.

    Planting restrictions

    We have defined certain areas in the interactive mapping tool. However, not all land is managed by Council. Planting will be restricted to Council managed land only.

    Feedback relating to requests for trees in areas outside of Council control, will be forwarded onto our State Government counterparts.
