Request tree planting

We are responsible for all tree planting in streets, parks and nature strips. 

As a resident of our municipality, you can request a new tree planted at no cost:

  • in your nature strip

  • to replace a dead or vandalised tree   

You will need to tell us:

  • where you want the tree

  • if you live at the location

  • your name

  • your phone number (so we can discuss a tree species with you).

Request a tree planting  

After you request a tree

Once requested, our tree planting supervisor will call you to discuss a suitable tree species for your street and watering requirements if any.

Trees are planted in winter. Requests outside these seasons will be held until the planting season.

Looking after newly planted nature strip trees

Council is responsible for maintaining the tree and every effort is made to establish the tree within the first two years after planting so that it can survive on its own.

Any additional watering by residents (in accordance with current water restrictions) is welcomed and greatly appreciated.

Benefits of street trees

Trees beautify the streets and add value to your property and neighbourhood. Summer shade keeps footpaths and homes cooler. They also improve air quality and reduce wind.

Tree selection

We select appropriate tree species to suit the street appeal, local character, heights restrictions (if any), water requirements and soil conditions.
