National Tree Day

Thursday, 11 July 2019

 Inner West Council will again give away free trees to residents to mark National Tree Day on Sunday, 28 July.

The trees are in advanced containers and include small to medium size native and exotic species such as Banksia, Lilly Pilly, Christmas bush, Tibouchina, Magnolia and Jacaranda.

Council has given away more than 1,000 trees over that last few years, including 350 for National Tree Day 2018, making a significant contribution to the Inner West's local biodiversity and urban canopy for years to come.

The tree giveaway is at Richard Murden Reserve at Haberfield and there is a limit of two trees per household for Inner West Council residents only. Bring along proof of residency.

Richard Murden Reserve forms part of the GreenWay and leads directly to the Bay Run - head west towards Robson Park and Five Dock, or east over the footbridge towards Leichhardt Park.

As well as the tree giveaway, Council is also hosting community planting days at:

  • Leichhardt Park
  • Richard Murden Reserve
  • Tempe Reserve

Volunteers can register and find out more information at Wear a hat, sun protection and enclosed shoes.

Council will provide gloves, trowels and other tools for the planting.
