Council tree planting used as shade tree example
The Grow Urban Shade Trees group has used council street tree planting in Woy Woy as an example of trees that could be planted more widely across the Peninsula.
Weeping lilly pilly (waterhousea or syzygium floribunda) was "an east coast native that ticks all the boxes", said group member Ms Jenny Wilder.
"It is robust and ornamental, making it a favourite for use in urban settings.
"One of the larger lilly pilly varieties, waterhousea floribunda packs a serious punch when it comes to creating shade.
"And what's better than one waterhousea floribunda?
"A whole row of course - as can be seen outside Woy Woy library (pictured)".
