Thousands of trees to be planted throughout Camden
Thousands of trees are set to make the Camden area greener and leafier with Council accepting a tender for the planting of trees as part of the Greening Our City Every Tree Counts program.
The tender will see the planting of almost 1,500 street and park trees over the next 12 months as part of the delivery of two NSW Government Greening our City grant funded projects. It will also cover Council’s ongoing tree planting program for the next three years, with an option to extend for a further two by one-year extensions.
Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli said the trees were a welcome addition to an already leafy Camden area.
“Camden is lucky enough to be set in a beautiful environment and it is fantastic to be adding to our beautiful tree canopy,” Cr Fedeli said.
“Not only will more trees look beautiful, but they will also provide great oxygen and shade covering for our community.
“I look forward to seeing the trees planted and growing over the years to come.”
The location and species of trees to be planted will be assessed for each individual site based on site constraints and to complement the existing streetscape and other plantings.
