Trees in CB City

​A 15-year commitment by local residents has helped transform a park in Canterbury-Bankstown.

Carysfield Park, Bass Hill, was once a baron grassed space, now it’s a vibrant ecological ecosystem thanks to Council’s yearly support of National Tree Day, and the support of resident volunteers.

“I have seen myself what a massive difference our annual tree planting days have made on the City, since I was first elected to Council in 2004,” Mayor Khal Asfour said.

“These annual events are a great way for our community to get their hands dirty and learn about protecting our parks and reserves for future generations to enjoy.

“The transformation of Carysfield Park was so successful, we branched out to Band Hall Reserve.”

Residents can come along to the next community tree planting event at Band Hall Reserve on Sunday 28 July, between 10am and 1pm, to help and receive their free native plant seedling in return. There will also be a free barbecue for volunteers and Council staff will be on hand to offer advice on native plants and household gardens.

Milperra resident, Joanne Somerville, and her children Maggie (18) and Thomas (19) have participated in local tree planting events since 2005.

“It has become a family tradition in our household, even with my kids grown up and one of them living away from home,” she said.

“They are both really proud to see the landscape improve over the years and they still visit ‘their’ wattle every so often to see how much it has grown.

“These events are a great way for you to be part of the community, give back to our local environment and even learn a new skill.”

Council is also supplying more than 3,400 native plants to 45 local schools taking part in Schools’ Tree Day, to plant on their grounds.
