We’re aiming high this year with plans to plant 2350 trees in residential areas around Greater Geelong. This will be achieved by planting 1500 trees by the end of September, before commencing watering in October.
The balance of trees (850) will then be planted during May and June 2020. The reason we plant from May to September is that the conditions are more favourable for planting.
Last financial year (2018–19) we planted 1489 new street trees and 365 new park trees. The City’s street tree planting program is very popular with our residents and as such, spots often fill quickly. If you’d like to request a tree for the 2020 planting season you can visit www.geelongaustralia.com.au/trees or phone customer service on 5272 5272.
A member of our team will come out to look at the site and work with you to determine the best species and fit for your nature strip.
