As our city gets hotter, trees and vines offer one of the simplest and most effective ways to stay comfortable and cut cooling costs.

The right tree in the right place can shade you all summer and still let the winter sunshine in to warm up your house! In this workshop we’ll go through how to position trees and vines in Melbourne’s climate to manage sun and wind, and cooling breezes.
