Leafy City Program
The Leafy City Program aims to provide the City of Joondalup with increased leafy canopy cover in residential streets through tree planting in order to mitigate the environmental impact of climate change and rapid urban growth and to create cooler, inviting green urban spaces.
Since May 2017, the City has been implementing this Program and has planted over 2,300 trees in the suburbs of Beldon, Craigie, Heathridge, Padbury, Kinross and Currambine.
The next stage of this Program will commence during the Winter planting months of May to September 2019. Approximately 1,300 trees will be planted in the suburbs of Heathridge, Woodvale, Kingsley and Greenwood. These suburbs have been identified as having a low level of canopy coverage and the planting of street trees will improve street amenity and comfort for pedestrians as well as reducing the urban heat island effect generated by hardstand surfaces.
