Five million trees for a greener Sydney by 2030

We’re working with everyone in Greater Sydney to plant Five Million Trees by 2030. That’s more trees in our streets, parks, backyards, neighbourhoods and schools, so we can grow our tree canopy from 16.8% to 40%.


More tree canopy means healthier neighbourhoods, more shade, cooler suburbs, habitats for our wildlife and even an increase in property values.


We can’t do it alone! We all need to do our part.

We need your help. Whether you’re an individual, a council, an organisation or a community group, we want you to be one of the Five Million!
