The Western Suburbs are made up of seven Local Governments. These are the Towns of Cambridge, Claremont, Cottesloe, Mosman Park, Peppermint Grove and the Cities of Nedlands and Subiaco. This group will be working towards increasing the urban tree canopy by helping to educate the public and policy makers about the importance of cool leafy suburbs for the public health and well-being of citizens and native wildlife.
West Tree Canopy held their first public forum on Wednesday night, which was very well attended and the speakers were all excellent. Below was the flyer for the event;
Like everywhere, tree canopy loss is a big issue in many parts of the Western Suburbs. See this article about Nedlands , Western suburbs not-so-leafy… Nedlands loses 12 hectares of tree cover .
