Gecko Talks 22nd June 2022 -Gold Coast Urban Tree Canopy Study

This month Gecko Environment Council welcomes Gold Coast Council officers to Gecko’s regular talks on matters of interest to residents.
The talk this month will feature Council plans for tree planting throughout the city based on the Urban Tree Canopy Report undertaken by Arup in 2019. The report identified the priority areas and the urgent need for more trees. Studies indicate that 68% of our urban area has no canopy, while private owned land has 21%, road reserves 3%, public owned land (including open space) 8%.
