Bunnings is giving away thousands of free trees to people living in greater Sydney under a new partnership with the NSW government.
From June to October this year, the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment has partnered with Bunnings Warehouse to give away trees to Sydney households.
The program has proved so popular that stock for June was exhausted within just days.
The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment said more trees would be available by early July.
More than 29,000 trees have already been given away and planted in backyards across the Greater Sydney region.
“The giveaway is a fantastic opportunity to add some greenery to your home and help make your suburb an even more beautiful place to live,” the department said.
“Planting more trees will provide more shade, more privacy and cleaner air. We are encouraging everyone to plant one.”
These trees have been supplied by Bunnings Warehouse and IndigiGrow Nursery.
Households eligible are those that have an address in one of the 33 local government areas in greater Sydney and haven’t already applied for a free tree in 2021.
Each month a limited number of trees will be available via the NSW Planning Portal.
