Kingborough Council hosts National Tree Day in Taroona

Urban biodiversity is important for local wildlife, landscape health, habitat connectivity and human health and wellbeing. Together, we will plant a section of this well visited community park to achieve all of these. The iconic gum trees in this space are suffering from the lack of understory. The absence of shrubs and groundcover also inhibit the movement of small birds and animals. We will be planting a diverse range of locally native plants, grown in the Council nursery from seeds sourced locally. Our planting site is near an old blue gum tree (Eucalyptus globulus) and we hope the new community of plants around its base will help it thrive for many years to come.
