Tick for tree plan
CANNING Council has approved a street tree strategy, including measures against street tree vandalism. The strategy consists of replanting two trees for every street tree removed and increasing canopy cover by continuing annual street tree planting programs. Canning has the third lowest canopy cover of the 29 local councils, as assessed in 2014. There will be a review of the list of approved tree species to allow for a wider diversity of trees to be planted. Residents will be able to send their requests for a street tree to be planted on their property on the council website.
