The plan includes targets for planting 20,000 trees in the first year, and developing initiatives to protect and enhance existing remnant vegetation.

Initiatives contained it the strategy consider Council-owned land where revegetation could be undertaken as well as programs to encourage the community to revegetate private properties.
