Green Streets

The City's Green Streets program is fulfilling our Sustainable Sydney 2030 commitment to increase tree canopy cover in the city by 50% over the next 20 years.

We are planting trees in streets because they provide shade, calm traffic, make streets look more beautiful, reduce temperatures and act as pollution filters for air and stormwater.

Our Green Streets program will increase the city's canopy cover in our streets by:

  • establishing planter beds in the middle of wide streets;
  • planting trees and shrubs on the sides or corners of streets; and
  • creating rain gardens to filter stormwater on the side of streets.
