Wollongong Council to plant 500 trees


Over the next four weeks, Wollongong Council staff have set themselves the challenge of planting 500 new street trees across the Wollongong region.

Council says if you were a resident or community member who responded to the call-out for requests for a street tree to be planted on the verge outside your property or in a public space, workers may be coming to you soon.

Council says it received more than 500 requests for new street trees to be planted on the verge outside properties across the Wollongong region. To meet the demand, Council is bringing together a squad of Council staff to plant as many trees as possible in one month.
