Why we’re doing this
We invite your feedback on a proposal to plant more trees on Briggs Street, Camperdown.
Our Greening Sydney strategy has clear targets for increasing canopy cover across our local area for a cooler and more resilient city.
The current canopy cover of Briggs Street is only 6% and has been identified as part of our program to increase canopy by planting within the roadway. Planting in the roadway will allow the trees to grow in enough soil and away from overhead cables and narrow footpaths.
What we’re doing
At Briggs Street, we propose to plant 5 trees in the roadway and 2 trees in the footpath at each end of the street. Caesalpinia ferrea (Leopard wood) will be planted in the roadway and Tristanioposis laurina (Water gum) in the footpath.
These trees will provide shade and contribute to our area’s overall resilience in the face of a changing climate. To plant the trees, we’ll remove 3 to 4 parking spaces depending on the final design.
