Whitehorse City Council

Whitehorse Tree Education Program

Council’s Tree Education Program raises awareness of the benefits of trees in an urban environment. Trees provide many environmental, social and health benefits to the municipality. They absorb air pollutants and release oxygen, provide shade for humans and shelter for local wildlife; add value to surrounding properties; they give us peace of mind and make our streets more attractive, green and liveable.
