Adopt a tree sees City go green

Anyone in Vincent can register as a tree adopter and care for a single tree, verge or streetscape.

Mayor John Carey said the public response to the program had been overwhelming.

�It encourages a culture of ownership and pride for where you live; people are really passionate about it,� Mr Carey said.

�We had a case where some drunken yobbos were vandalising trees and local residents spoke out about it and told them to stop.� Oxford Street is now a �green corridor� with record 81 trees planted recently.
