WA Tree Festival 2024

The WA Tree Festival 2024 is a community celebration of trees in our urban areas and beyond, running from 6 April to 5 May 2024.

Trees provide a range of benefits, including:

  • Cooling our homes, streets, and environment (canopy cover can cool areas by up to five degrees and reduce cooling costs in the home).
  • Providing shade and habitat for wildlife.
  • Cleaning the air and improving mental and physical health.
  • Reducing heat-related illnesses and death during heat waves.
  • Increasing amenity and economic value of our homes, streets, and reserves (homes on tree-lined streets are worth an average of $16,000 more than homes on streets without trees).

The Town of Bassendean has organised a series of community activities and events to celebrate the Festival, see details below. Don’t forget our community groups: to find out about their events, or other activities around WA please visit the WA Tree Festival website or follow the WA Tree Festival Facebook or Instagram.
