Greening the West

Greening the West – 1 Million Trees Project

 Finalist in the 2019 Premier’s Sustainability Awards categories for:

  • Environmental Protection
  • Government

Greening the West is a massive partnership that aims for positive health, social and liveability outcomes in Melbourne’s west through a project to plant one million trees.

Each of the participating organisations committed to planting a portion of the trees within their geographic boundaries either on public and private land. They determined planting locations, engaged community groups and worked collaboratively. Between 2015 and 2018 the project involved more than 4,500 volunteers who planted 1,072,320 trees and shrubs across 320 parks, reserves, open spaces, roadsides and private land, covering 1,755 hectares.
