Easy wood project red in Brisbane is on the increase.
More than 300 easy wood projects are being built in the city’s west, and the number is expected to increase to 3,000 by the end of the year, according to Brisbane City Council.
The projects are largely funded by the Queensland Government, and many are designed to help reduce the spread of heat-related disease.
In May this year, the City Council gave approval for the installation of five trees on two properties, in a parkland area on Wilsons Rd. and Eureka Avenue.
They were built on an existing wood site and will help reduce emissions.
The council’s council leader, Andrew Lough, said the new trees would be a catalyst for other communities in the area to invest in their own hardwood trees.
Mr Lough said the project was important for the city and for the local community.
“We’re really excited to be able to work with the council to get these trees built and they’re going to have an impact on the city,” he said.
“They’re going get a boost in emissions and they’ll be a big help to the local environment.”
Mr Lrough said there was an abundance of hardwood and it was very important to get a large number of them installed in the right place.
“We’re working with our council partners and with our community to build out some really exciting projects,” he told news.com.au.
“There’s a lot of hardwoods around Brisbane, but you’ve got to make sure the trees are all right and in the spot they’re supposed to be.”
