 WHYALLA COUNCIL MEETING BRIEFS

‘Adopt a Tree’ program to see Council,
community working together

Whyalla Council has endorsed an Adopt a Tree draft program seeking community partnership support to improve the appearance of streets through the planting and maintenance of new trees.

The creation of a suitable budget for implementation of the program in the 2014/2015 financial year and onwards was also endorsed at Council’s latest monthly meeting.

The move follows advice sought from consultants Oxigen Landscape Architects and Urban Designers to help develop an Adopt a Tree program.

Aimed at promoting community involvement and care of trees mainly at property frontages, the initiative recognises trees as an important and valued community asset, and the public’s desire to help care for these trees.

The community will have an opportunity to assist Council in shaping the program in the way it will be run and become successful.

Oxigen will prepare a residential streets landscape plan and assist in developing a list of trees for individual streets.
