North East Link is delivering one of the largest tree planting programs for a major transport project in Victoria.
Well before major construction begins, we’ve already planted new trees at Simpson Barracks in Yallambie, Belle Vue Primary School in Balwyn North and at Watsonia Primary School.
About the North East Link tree planting program
For every tree removed to build North East Link at least two will be planted, helping to grow a greener north and east.
More than 30,000 trees will be planted along and near the North East Link Project, keeping them as close as possible to where they have been removed. We’ll also be planting trees to shade and cool places nearby like local parks, nature reserves and walking and cycling paths.
