Free street tree for your verge


Did you know that you can apply for a free street tree to be planted by the City on your verge? Street trees cool the environment, provide shade, create habitat for native fauna, reduce greenhouse gases and help improve air quality. As part of the City’s on-going street tree planting program the City will provide and plant a tree from the preferred species list and all you have to do is water them during summer for the first couple of years to help them establish.

Applications close on 31 March each year with trees planted in winter of the same year.

To see the preferred species list, or for more information on the street tree planting program see the City’s Tree Management Guidelines, or contact the City’s Customer Service Team on 9400 4255.
