About the project

Council has partnered with Endeavour Energy to plant around 1,850 trees across the Shoalhaven to help improve shade and reduce urban heat in neighbourhoods, support the regeneration of bushland and biodiversity, and protect and stabilise our foreshores.

The initiative aims to support the regeneration of vulnerable bushland with local and appropriate species selected to enhance the local habitat and support biodiversity.

Eighteen locations have been identified for planting native species including tourist parks, reserves and streets in towns across the Shoalhaven region, culminating in a Tree Planting Day at Dolphin Point. 

The trees chosen for street planting are ideal for the streetscape environment as their shape and structure when they mature won’t impede pedestrian access and car parking.  

Tree planting sites

The majority of trees will be planted as seedlings in natural areas to assist in revegetating and improving the value of these sites. In addition to these trees, a further 200 street trees will be planted across the Shoalhaven.

Sites include:

  • Thurgate Oval, Bomaderry dog park
  • Connors View, Berry (revegetation of the creekline)
  • Foreshore Reserve, Did-Dell St Ulladulla
  • Dolphin Point Foreshore
  • Foreshore Reserve, Burrill Lake
  • Local Park at Dudley Ave, Nowra
  • Nowra Showground
  • Ferry Lane, Nowra
  • Foreshore Park, Nowra
  • Foreshore Park, Greenwell Point
  • Queenbeyan Ave, Burrill Lake
  • Huntingdale Drive, Mollymook
  • Plantation Point Reserve, Vincentia
  • Milton – Croobyar Rd and Myrtle St
  • Village Drive, Ulladulla
  • Lake Conjola Entrance Rd

Endeavour Energy is working towards being climate positive by 2040, waste neutral by 2030 and nature positive by 2025.

This nature positive target will see Endeavour Energy enhance and improve the natural habitat by adding and protecting more vegetation than they remove through operational activities that are required to keep the electricity network safe.
