The Andrews Labor Government will build green canopies with 500,000 new trees in Melbourne’s west – creating cooler spaces for families in the western suburbs to enjoy for generations to come.

The Labor Government will invest $5 million to plant the new trees in growth areas across six councils providing more shade and green spaces, driving down pollution and improving air quality.

Importantly, the trees will help reduce the urban heat island effect which leads to higher temperatures and lower air quality in those urban communities without enough vegetation.
