More free trees in Davidson? You’d better be-leaf it!

Residents in the Davidson electorate and across Greater Sydney will be able to claim a free tree for their backyards as part of the NSW Government’s popular Free Tree Giveaway.

Member for Davidson, Jonathan O’Dea said the program will offer thousands of trees to claim during autumn and spring, which are great planting times.

“This year’s trees include native varieties as well as citrus and flowering trees which will provide shade and privacy for years to come,” Mr O’Dea said.

“Trees provide important shelter and food for wildlife and create a cool oasis in your own yard,” he said.

Department of Planning and Environment Executive Director Steve Hartley said more than 25,000 trees are being offered across Greater Sydney’s 33 council areas.

Trees improve our quality of life, increasing air quality and shade,” Mr Hartley said.

“We received an overwhelming response to our giveaway in the first two years – running out of trees in just days – with more than 45,000 already planted in Greater Sydney backyards as part of this program.

“We are encouraging everyone to get their hands dirty, plant a tree, big or small, outside of the giveaway and register it to make it count towards our target,” he said.

The program is part of the NSW Premier’s Priority of Greening our City, which aims to plant one million trees in Greater Sydney by the end of 2022.

Applications are online and your local Bunnings store will be in contact when trees are ready to be collected and planted.
