City's annual tree planting program set to commence
The City of Greater Bendigo will commence planting approximately 1,200 advanced trees throughout the municipality from today Monday July 2, 2018.
City of Greater Bendigo Parks and Open Space Manager Paul Gangell said the City was committed to improving the liveability of Bendigo’s urban areas and townships through its annual advanced tree planting program.
“The program enhances the appearance of our streetscapes, recreation facilities and parks and gardens, and supports community health and wellbeing,” Mr Gangell said.
“The advanced trees are over 1.5 metres tall and include a mix of native and exotic species and the City’s arboriculture team select the most appropriate species for a location, based on local conditions, climate, neighbourhood character and relevant master plans and strategies.
“The City is responsible for all ongoing maintenance of the trees including watering them for the first two years.”
