Residents near North East Link Tunnels construction areas can green their garden by planting up to two free trees as part of the Greener North East program.

Residents living in Watsonia, Macleod, Yallambie, Rosanna, Viewbank and Bulleen can choose from a range of eight native trees which are 100cm tall and ready for planting now. The background tree planting program is on top of work already underway to plant at least two trees for every one removed to build the North East Link.
