Recognising exceptional dedication to the preservation and growth of Cape Town’s urban forests, the City awarded the Arbor City Partnership Award to the ‘TreeKeepers’ by the National Department of Fisheries, Forestry and Environment , for their unwavering commitment to tree care and education. This year, the City Council adopted the Urban Forest Policy. This policy underscores the City’s commitment to preserving and enhancing urban forests, outlining strategies for tree planting, preservation and maintenance throughout Cape Town.

‘As we mark National Arbor Month, we reaffirm our commitment to nurturing and expanding these essential green spaces in Cape Town, and we invite residents to join us on this journey by planting a tree, learning about our local flora and contributing towards a greener and more sustainable Cape own,’ concluded Councillor Van der Ross.
