Territory and Municipal Services are letting us know they’ve been busy planting trees around town:
Over 800 new trees have been planted in Canberra’s streets and parks over the past few weeks, Territory and Municipal Services announced today.
“Plantings took place along major arterial roads, residential streets and in open space areas including parks and reserves,” said Michael Brice, Manager, Urban Treescapes, Territory and Municipal Services.
“Trees were planted in iconic avenues including Ainslie Avenue and Warragamba Avenue and throughout Canberra’s central business district while 150 trees were planted in the heritage listed Haig Park.
“Approximately 40 different species of trees of both native and exotic species were planted, including Ashes, Gleditsias, Golden Rain trees and Oaks. The trees were chosen to complement the surrounding landscape and for their suitability with Canberra’s climate.
“The cooler, damp weather provided the perfect conditions to undertake these plantings.”
