The City of Fremantle’s urban forest has continued to grow, with another 1926 trees planted during the 2022 winter planting season.
A total of 901 trees were planted in natural areas like bushland and foreshore reserves, while 1025 trees were planted in Fremantle’s streets and parks.
The 1926 trees planted this year exceeded the 2022 target in the City’s Urban Forest Plan by 846.
The benefits of increasing Fremantle’s tree canopy cover include making our suburbs cooler by reducing the Urban Heat Island effect, beautifying our streets and providing habitat for local wildlife.
