Summer Shade Study

Planting the right tree in the right place will make our City more liveable. There are many areas across our City with very little shade, and we want to focus our efforts on making a difference where we need it most.

Your feedback from the Summer Shade Survey is one way to help us to prioritise planting in areas which will deliver the best outcomes for the whole community.

Help us plan for a cooler, shadier City by telling us where you think we need more trees. By sharing your experiences, you’re helping to plan for the future.

Council has adopted a new Urban Greening Strategy, to guide our work over the next 20 years. It’s our big picture plan to protect and maintain existing trees, and grow tree canopy cover across the City.

The Summer Shade Survey is easy. Drop a pin in the map below where you think we need trees. Let us know why - you can add comments, and upload photos. You can send a note about a favourite place. Tell us where we’re doing well, what you really like, and where we can improve.

We’re committed to delivering great trees where they matter most. 

Drop a GREEN pin where there is great shade. Drop a RED pin where we need more shade. Or drop a BLUE pin if you have other suggestions...
