Freo's urban forest is growing
More than 1800 trees have been planted over the past 12 months as part of the plan to create an urban forest in Fremantle.
In the 2017-18 financial year a total of 714 trees were planted by the City of Fremantle on residential verges and in local parks, while another 92 were added as part of the landscaping component of City projects like pocket parks, car parks and walkways.
In addition, the City also planted 12,000 plants - including 1015 trees - in dunes, bushland and the river foreshore during nine community planting days and 21 volunteer planting days with conservation volunteers and local schools.
The suburb of Samson had the highest tree planting numbers in 2017/18 due to the City’s targeted Greening Samson project. A total of 212 trees were planted in Samson alone, while another 299 were planted in Beaconsfield, Hilton and Fremantle, and 203 in South Fremantle, North Fremantle, White Gum Valley and O’Connor.
