Tick for tree plan

Canning Times - - NEWS -

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.
