Tree planting

This year Council committed $150,000 to creating and maintaining green spaces in Palmerston through plantings and landscaping to improve the environment and liveability for the community. The Northern Territory Government matched Council's commitment for this project, contributing $150,000.

Green open spaces and urban forests are considered key social and environmental infrastructure for a sustainable city. Landscaped spaces and corridors create visual appeal and cool our streets, homes and buildings, reduce stormwater runoff, and support physical and mental health of residents, biodiversity, social and recreational activities.

Tree planting has commenced on Temple Terrace.
