MTA promotes awareness and education about the value of trees within the Mandurah area.
We encourage urban greening; the planting of trees and shrubs in urban locations e.g. street verges, parks, reserves and home gardens.
Our preference is Western Australian species and their hybrids, which are havens for native birds to feed and shelter.

Help protect habitat for our local wildlife and check whether you live in a tree preservation area before pruning or removing any trees. Fines apply for unapproved clearing.

Our Mandurah Nature Trails project to plant up to a thousand trees to provide nature links between reserves and to create cool green walking trails throughout Mandurah has received funding from the Australian Government’s Planting Trees for the Queen’s Jubilee Program and also from the City of Mandurah, and work is now underway.

We need volunteers to help us prepare the planting areas, as in the photos below. There’s lots of mulching and watering to do as well! We also need schools and youth groups to help. Find out more.

On 29th October 2022 a small team braved the elements to mulch the seedlings near the boat ramp in Riverside Gardens. Thank you to the Rotary Club of Mandurah Districts who were on standby to mulch. The City of Mandurah beat them to it! Click on the photos to enlarge.

On 6th September 2022 banksias were planted at Riverside Gardens Reserve by Jacob Cumberworth, Daniela Buters, Dael Olfzowy and Taryn Hughes. Also helping were Robyn Devenish and Sandra Dandie. Thank you all.

Men of the Trees help MEHG prepare the planting areas
Men of the Trees volunteers help MEHG prepare the planting areas at Riverside Gardens Reserve on the Serpentine River on 10 August 2022. Thank you to Lisa Wray, Judy Olsen and Carol Lymn for helping us to prepare the soil for a planting session with John Tonkin College students later in the day. Coloured markers were used to differentiate the different species of banksia - Menziesli and Attenuata.
