Greening our City: St Clair tree planting information day
We’re planting trees in St Clair as part of our Cooling the City Strategy. Join us for a great morning of activities and learn more about the benefits of cooling our streets.
We're inviting residents and visitors to come down and talk to us about the project and learn more about why we’re planting the trees and how you can be involved.
We’ll also be hosting a free tree giveaway for planting on private property, a nature explore table and a face painter for the kids and adults to enjoy. A coffee cart will be on site offering free hot beverages.
Why St Clair?
Council conducted research to identify suburbs in the Penrith LGA that had fewer trees, leaving them exposed to higher temperatures than the suburbs with more vegetation. St Clair was identified as one of these suburbs.
What are some of the benefits of planting trees in this area?
- Planting trees provides necessary shade that may help cool streets, parks and shared spaces.
- May increase local property values
- Creates beautiful and vibrant areas that can boost wellbeing
If you are unwell, please stay at home. You can find out more about the project at Your Say Penrith.
