Cumberland Tree Planting

We are planting trees around Cumberland

February 2022 update:

So far, more than 220 trees have been planted for the Cooler Corridor as part of the NSW Government's Five Million Trees program.

October 2021 notice:

More than 1200 trees will be planted across Cumberland City Council as part of the Cooler Corridor and Canopy for the Community projects.

The initiative will see the planting and maintenance of a variety of native trees in areas such as riparian corridors, parks and reserves in areas including Duck River, Prospect Creek and Pemulwuy over the coming months.

With the increase in heat across Western Sydney, we recognise the importance of creating a cooler and healthier environment for our residents.

The Cooler Corridor and Canopy for the Community projects will increase the existing canopy and provide additional shade and comfort in parks, bushland and community spaces.
