Jenni McGlennon from Onkaparinga Council -  Urban Forrest Program" Wednesday 14th March @ 7pm 

Greening Onkaparinga 

The City of Onkaparinga has set a series of urban forest targets that will see a 20% increase in urban green cover (trees and shrubs) in our urban area by 2045.  This will amount to 100,000 new trees in street verges, waterways and parks on council land. Community support will be needed to meet this goal. 

The new targets are in response to the community asking for more trees and mapping undertaken in 2016 which showed that canopy cover is uneven across our region’s suburbs and townships.

Staff from the Sustainability and Urban Forest teams will present on the City of Onkaparinga Urban Forest program, its benefits and challenges, and provide an overview of how trees are managed on council land.
