To remain sustainable and liveable into the future, the City is prioritising its greening.
Greening refers to the practice of increasing and improving the resilience and amount of vegetation in a city. This vegetation is known as the Urban Forest.
Currently, Bunbury has a canopy cover of 13.7 per cent which is well below the West Australian average of 20 per cent.
The vision for the Greening Bunbury plan is:
“Nuture and grow our existing urban forest to contribute to the health and wellbeing of our community, and create a liveable City for future generations”.
Key target of a 10 per cent increase in canopy cover over 20 years
Aspirational target of a 20 per cent increase in canopy cover over 20 years.
