We want to hear what you think is important to increase metropolitan Adelaide’s tree canopy, cool the city and boost biodiversity.

What's being decided?

We are seeking your feedback on the actions of the draft Urban Greening Strategy for metropolitan Adelaide and the potential opportunities for collaboration and implementation.

The strategy identifies priority actions that:

  • fill known gaps or scale up what is already working well
  • unlock metropolitan-wide benefits
  • harness cross-sector collaboration and/or co-investment.

We encourage all community members and organisations who deliver, influence or are interested in urban greening to contribute their thoughts to inform the final strategy and its future implementation.


Background

Metropolitan Adelaide has almost 17% tree canopy cover, but this isn’t evenly distributed across our suburbs.

For Adelaide’s urban environment to thrive, we need a roadmap for increasing tree canopy, cooling the city and boosting biodiversity.

Tree canopy and other plants cool our city, provides mental and physical health benefits for our population, and provides homes for native animals.

Urban temperatures are predicted to increase, so it’s even more important that we grow a healthy and diverse urban forest to ensure that Adelaide stays liveable and cool.

The strategy brings together state government, metropolitan councils, non-government organisations, industry peak bodies, research institutions, Kaurna people and the broader community to deliver practical greening actions that share the load and bridge the gaps between different stakeholders.

Everyone has a different, but important, role to play in greening our city.
