Willoughby is renowned for its natural features, including its bushland and established tree canopy.

Beyond their beauty, trees act as natural air purifiers, habitat for native fauna, provide privacy and shade, reduce noise, store carbon, assist storm water management and lower urban temperatures. Spending time in green spaces is also linked to improved mental health and well-being.

Willoughby City Council is committed to preserving these natural assets and has measures in place to ensure our city’s green future.
