Lakes Boulevard tree planting

As part of our main roads street tree planting program, we will be planting new trees along Lakes Boulevard, from Plenty Road to Findon Road, in South Morang throughout July and August.

Trees provide our community a range of benefits, including:

  • providing much needed shade in urban areas
  • contributing to neighbourhood character and the look and feel of the street
  • reducing air pollution in an efficient and cost-effective way
  • providing habitat for native wildlife
  • enhancing people’s health and wellbeing.

Our main roads planting program also aims to transform streetscapes throughout the City of Whittlesea into vibrant boulevards of diverse, colourful trees that connect people and nature.

The trees that will be planted along the Lakes Boulevard have been specifically chosen to suit this location and will include a range of deciduous and evergreen trees.

*Please note: Council will need to remove some existing trees, plants and stumps in nature strips. Subject to weather and operational requirements, these works will commence in August 2022 and be completed by November 2022.
