We all know the relief of a shady tree on a hot day. They provide multiple functions and wide ranging benefits that extend to health and wellbeing. They can also be productive and produce fruit or nuts which can be picked, eaten and shared by the public. An investment in Street Trees is an integral part of keeping our community cool, especially in our changing climate.

Trees can transform a street more easily than any other physical improvement, plus it's always wonderful to see nature in bloom close by. If you'd like to see a greener world and help keep Brisbane cooler, and shadier, while having a day out helping grow our urban forest, head to Kaohsiung Park, 26 Highvale Street, Eight Mile Plains on Sun 10 March 2019 from 9am to 12pm for this Eight Mile Plains tree planting event. Meeting Point is on the Highvale Street frontage of the park.

If you'd like to learn more about street tree planting, there's a community information session beforehand at Garden City Library, Garden City Shopping Centre, Corner Logan and Kessels Road, Upper Mt Gravatt on Thursday 28 February 2019 from 6-7pm. You'll have the opportunity to speak with an arborist or with a program officer to gain more information on the planting.

On the day of the planting, for comfort and safety, wear sturdy covered shoes, a hat and sunscreen, and bring your reusable water bottle and coffee cup. All planting holes will be dug beforehand. All new street trees have been carefully chosen to suit the local area. The newly-planted street trees will be established using potable water and maintained by Council. Streets to be planted are Amber Close, Azzure Street, Bolinda Street, Cressbrook Street, Dandelion Street, Demigre Street, Dominion Street, Ellendale Circuit, Fanfare Street, Forbes Place, Geranium Court, Highvale Street, Horizon Place, Ivory Close, Jubilee Court, Manor Street, Petunia Court, Pinnacle Place, Ruby Close, Skyline Court, Trevi Close and Warrigal Road.


It's not all work and no play. Bring your picnic basket and enjoy a day in the park; meet your neighbours, enjoy live music and a sausage sizzle. Kids will have eco-activities and a chance to appreciate and be one with nature. As a thank you for participating on the day, you'll receive a FREE native plant for your garden.

While at the event, you can also participate in a citizen science project with RMIT University and the University of New South Wales. You'll perform microclimate experiments and understand how you can help keep the Brisbane heat at bay. Discover how plants and materials in your home can create a cooling effect and reduce your household's energy needs and electricity bills. If you'd like to participate in this activity, REGISTER via the Citizen Science Project page.
