Urban forest strategy—Mr Brian Brocklebank

MS CHEYNE (Ginninderra) (6.08): I rise tonight to speak briefly about an important announcement that I was pleased to be a part of in Ginninderra this week. As you are aware, the urban forest strategy was released on Monday, and as part of this I joined Minister Steel on a frosty morning at the Jamison Centre to announce a special project for the trees in the Jamison car park.

This might not sound like the most exciting project you have heard of, but anyone who has visited the Jamison Centre knows exactly why it matters—the numbers of trees are sparse, just like the trees themselves are sparse. They are struggling to grow under compacted root space, lack of available water and insufficient soil volume. They are undersized and unhealthy, if they have not outright failed already. It is one of those things that, once you see, you cannot unsee.
