How was the Greening Fremantle Strategy developed?
Why is greening Fremantle important?
Trees and green spaces are particularly important in city urban environments, where people live, work and recreate. Some of the social, economic and environmental values include:
Social – improve community sociability, reduce heat-related illness, reduce air pollution, encourage more outdoor activity, improve mental wellbeing, provide sense of place and heritage.
Economic – reduce health-related costs, reduce energy costs through reduced heat, increase property value, filter extreme weather, protect groundwater, extend hard infrastructure life through reduced sun exposure.
Environmental – provide habitat, take up carbon, support ecosystems (south-west WA is an international biodiversity hotspot).
