Hornsby Shire Council has committed to planting 25,000 new trees by September 2020 to further strengthen our reputation as the Bushland Shire and to invest in the environment for future generations.
The community has repeatedly told us, through various consultations, that trees are very important to them and council have taken that message to heart. More trees will not just add to the aesthetic of Hornsby Shire, our native wildlife will also benefit as well as bringing a range of very real improvements to quality of life for our residents, including cleaner air and lower summer temperatures.
A key source of the new trees will be Council’s Community Nursery, where production is set to shift to a new level.
Council cannot do this alone, we will be calling on the community to help us plant these trees on special tree planting days and help us nurture them as they grow.
