September is Arbor Month We are on a mission to extend Joburg’s urban forest, focussing on planting trees in the southern suburbs of the City to ensure that it matches its greener sister in the north. This year, the main focus is on newly developed areas in Region C, D and G.

A total of 8 200 trees will be planted in Fleurhof, Devland, Lufhereng and Malibongwe Ridge. JCPZ’s main event will take place in Fleurhof (Region C), where 2 000 trees will be planted on both sides of the road and at the road island in Fleurhof Drive, the main street of the suburb. A further 1 000 trees will be planted in front of houses and blocks of flats. In Region D, more than 2 200 trees will be planted in the newly developed suburb, Lufhereng Proper.

Devland, in Region G, will gain 2 840 trees in several streets to give this mainly industrial area a fresh, green look. Approximately 100 trees will also be planted in Malibongwe Ridge (Region C). We are proud to be part of this great effort to make our City a greener, healthier place to live in. Get ready to join the #Treevolution!
