Shepparton residents urged to help trees during warmer weather
Greater Shepparton City Council is keen for residents to keep an eye on the trees in their nature strips during the hotter weather.
The Council has advised that hot weather conditions affects the health of street trees, those in parks and gardens and in the natural environment.
Advising that regular Council watering programs are continuing but if residents are able to provide a bucket of water to the tree on their nature strip it would assist the tree to survive, Greater Shepparton acting Manager Parks, Sport and Recreation Peta Bailey stated "tree planting is carried out from May to September so most new trees are well established before summer however consecutive days of high temperature can affect trees of any age. We plant species that are suitable for the environment and location with a mix of native and exotic species.
“Street trees are vital for providing shade and improving the aesthetics of our residential and urban areas so it is important to make sure they survive the hotter and dry months.
“The tree canopy plays a vital role in cooling the environment especially in urban areas with asphalt roads and concrete footpaths where they reduce the urban heat island effect. They can help cool a house by providing shade and reducing temperatures. They also provide shade and shelter for pedestrians and cyclists.”
“Council has approximately 41,250 street and park trees in urban areas including Shepparton, Mooroopna, Tatura, Dookie, Murchison, Kialla and Toolamba. Under our Urban Forest Strategy, we aim to increase the tree canopy cover to 40 per cent resulting in many benefits to the community including - more shade, public amenity, green spaces and overall a healthier environment for all of us to live in,” she said.
“So while you are watering your garden it would be great if residents could also provide some water to their street tree.”
