Leafy City Program
The City of Joondalup developed the Leafy City Program to mitigate the environmental impact of climate change, rapid urban growth and the increasing heat-island effect generated by existing hardstand surfaces by providing increased leafy canopy cover in residential streets through tree planting in order to and to create cooler, inviting green urban spaces.
Since the program commenced in May 2017 it has seen the planting of over 3,600 trees across the suburbs of Beldon, Craigie, Heathridge, Padbury, Kinross, Currambine, Woodvale, Greenwood and Kingsley.
Suburbs receiving the Leafy City Program have been identified as ‘hot-spots’ via thermal mapping and tree-canopy surveying.
When will the program roll out?
The next round of tree planting will commence in May 2021 through to August 2021 supported by the advice and planning of the City’s arborist, landscape architects and civil engineers in the suburbs of Kallaroo, Mullaloo (border), Beldon and Warwick.
The City aims to work together with local residents to help create cooler inviting green urban spaces to live in.
