Street trees will transform Hammond Park

A mixture of native and exotic shade trees is set to transform the streetscape in Hammond Park.

The City’s Parks and Environment team embarked on the project after an approach from the Hammond Park Community Association.

The association requested a street tree program for some of the major roads in the growing suburb, which has about 5,600 residents.

The program will be rolled out across the suburb in coming years, with stage one plantings of more than 100 trees already under way and soon to be complete.

Macquarie Boulevard will soon be planted with Claret Ash and Illawarra Flame Tree, and the evergreen Australian Tuckeroo Tree will grace Jackadder Avenue.

Jacaranda and Plane Trees have already been planted along Eucalyptus Road while Barfield Road has Peppermint Trees and Melaleuca.

Once mature, the trees will provide shade for pedestrians, particularly children walking to and from school.

Trees planted in central median strips also help roads appear more narrow, helping reduce traffic speeds.
