During winter 2022, the City will be planting 100 locally native trees along the foreshore as part of a tree succession project. This project will have many benefits including protecting and improving the environment and enhancing the area for residents and park users by increasing shade.
The project is part of the implementation of the Shelley Rossmoyne Foreshore Management Plan, which was adopted by Council in September 2019.
A key action of the management plan is to plant trees for tree succession, to ensure a healthy stand of trees are established to replace declining mature river trees.
The project is jointly funded by the City of Canning and the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions’ Riverbank grants program.
