The City of Ryde is planting more trees as part of our commitment to increase the canopy cover to 40% by 2030.

As part of this commitment, Council will be planting 1,300 new street trees throughout the suburb of Ryde.

These tree planting works are scheduled to commence in September 2022 and will include new plantings as well as the replacement of some existing street trees.

This project has been made possible due to funding Council received from the NSW Government’s ‘Greening our City’ program.

WHERE WILL THE STREET TREES BE PLANTED?

Careful consideration is given to the location and tree species that is best suited for your street. All locations are individually assessed and existing constraints taken in to consideration.

Council is currently finalising the design plans for the street tree planting program which will be provided with the works notification letter.

To view the streets selected for street tree planting, please visit our online interactive map below.
