More Trees for Samson

02 Jan 2018

Thermal mapping carried out for the Urban Forest Plan to measure the current ‘urban heat island effect’ identified that Samson is a ‘hot spot’ with little canopy cover.

The image to the left shows the temperature difference between the green space and surrounding urban area. The blue shading represents an important biodiversity ‘green link’ running through Samson.

This has implications for community health, so in 2018 the City of Fremantle is prioritising Samson in its annual winter planting programme, with the aim of introducing hundreds of new trees to the suburb. Most of these will be verge plantings, however there are other opportunities to introduce new trees. Find out more on the Greening Samson project page.
