Maintaining and increasing the urban bushland, parks and tree coverage is a major challenge as our city grows, especially when you throw in the State Government's rapacious chopping down of trees for toll roads.


I started my career in local politics focussed on local parks. The first thing I did after being elected to South Sydney Council in 1980 was persuade a council worker to drive around and plant trees throughout the city.
