We love any chance to spruce up our digs, so listen up fam, free trees could be heading your way in the next few weeks.
This free trees initiative is part of the NSW Government’s project to plant one million trees in Greater Sydney by 2022, to provide more shade, cleaner air, and just make Sydney an even more cracker place to live.
Eligible households will be able to score free trees to plant in their backyard, you’ll just have to make sure you live in one of these 33 local government areas:
If your suburb checks in, then you’re all good to apply for your green babies here. Applications are open from March through to May (with more chances to score free trees to be announced in June).
As for where the trees will be coming from, the government has partnered with IndigiGrow—a new venture from First Hand Solutions, which is a First Nation-owned business that aims to sustain people, land, and culture through the propagation of native plants. You’ll be able to pick up your free trees from the not-for-profit from La Perouse Public School.
