    And I think also, that the Center plots could be planted with nicer flowers. Some plots are okay, but some only have one type of flower instead of different varieties. So are pretty boring. Other towns have much more varieties of flowers in their plots.

      Agree, its ok planting small tussock in windy poor dirt areas, planting tussock in city centre look horrible…Perhaps clipped hedges in certain areas and then more delicate trees and fruit trees would grow well…

    I would love Invercargill to embrace the possibility of being a Garden city, full of natives and fruit forests. The highways could be all lined with Hebe, helping break the open flatness of farmland, reduce expenditure of mowing and spraying road sides, and increase natural highways for wildlife.

    Made points also on Bee idea that relate to this idea.

    if trees are to be planted then road corners similar to that where EH Balls need to be considered as that corner is terrible and others like that around our city. But anyway if trees are planted then they could be fruit trees, pears, apples, berry bushes some sort of food would be an ideal offering.

    I think this is a great idea and the Parks department are doing a great job with maintaining what we have already. I do think we need to move the trees away from any pedestrian crossings as this makes it hard to vehicle operators to see when someone is wanting to cross until you are right next to the crossing.

      NZ most popular towns have trees throughout their area, e.g. Arrowtown…Queens Park is excellent but the ICC Reserves could plant more throughout the city in suburbs and streets, shopping centres..no gums, no cabbage trees…Plant well maintained hedges to shelter from icy winds which would help more delicate trees to survive..
