Green streets are cool streets

It’s well established that suburbs with lots of trees are much cooler that those without. This image is a thermal imaging map showing the average temperature across Fremantle in January 2015. Obviously places next to the coast are the coolest. But some areas with very few street trees are nearly 5° hotter than greener areas nearby. If you want a verge tree in front of your place then get in touch. While it’s free, new trees must be planted during the winter rains.
