Treeless suburbs are literally killing us
Treeless suburbs are literally killing us heat being the single biggest killer above floods, fire and the road toll, according to an ABC TV documentary (Why Australia's suburbs are so hot) on January 16.
While making road and roof colour lighter will help reduce urban heat, planting and maintaining large trees is the best and easiest thing we can do right now.
So spread, spread, spread the word.
Lobby council for tighter greening controls and community education and fight for floor space ratios that accommodate a shade tree.
Its time for smarter urban planning!
