Tea Tree Gully Council will plant 440 trees along a recently upgraded section of Golden Grove Road, to create a dense corridor of native trees and shrubs.

The plantings are expected to eventually increase the City’s tree canopy cover to help address climate change and provide habitat and food for native wildlife. The trees will also shade the footpaths for pedestrians.

The total value of the project, including site preparation, service connections, irrigation and planting, is estimated to be $440,000.

The Council has welcomed news of a $200,000 grant through the State Government’s Greener Neighbourhood program to help offset costs.

Details are not yet available on when work will start.

The project will follow on from landscaping works, including the planting of 300 trees, along earlier upgraded sections of Golden Grove Road:

  • From Kunzea Way to One Tree Hill Road – expected to be completed in the next month
  • Hancock Road intersection – already complete
