Building new roads, infrastructure and housing has resulted in thousands of mature trees removed across greater Sydney. Evidence shows we need more trees to reduce air pollution, protect against increasingly dangerous heat impacts and to provide beauty and amenity. This is especially important in the densely populated inner city where few people have private green space.
The government’s draft Greener Places Policy sounds good but has a big gap in implementation and measures to protect green open space. Comment is due 26 February HERE.
